On the iPhone, there is no app drawer. All the apps are on the home screen itself. Android also tried this trick and removed the all apps icon on most of the Android Smartphones.
It’s fine if you’re a new Android user however If you were used to the menu button then you must be looking for it on your LG K30/K40.
In this post, we are going to bring back the old App Drawer in a few steps. Follow the below video and screenshots –
LG K40 Home & App Drawer
Long-Press an empty space on your K40 Home Screen
Now, tap “Home screen settings” as shown above.
On the “Home Screen” page, select the first option i.e. “Select Home”.
We have got 3 options –
Home, Home & app drawer, EasyHome.
The current home screen is “Home”. Let’s change it to the one with an app drawer.
I’ve selected the “Home & app drawer” with the App Drawer icon enabled. Hit “OK” after choosing your desired home.
It says “Home & app drawer is set as default home”.
We can see all apps by using the newly added app drawer or by swiping up the screen.
You can go through the below video as well –

We can also have the app drawer without the drawer icon.
Again go to the “Home screen settings”.
Tap “Select Home”.
Let the Home remain “Home & app drawer” but toggle off “App drawer icon” & hit “OK”.
Now we have a Home with app drawer but without the drawer icon.
We can access all apps by swiping up the on the home screen as displayed in the above screenshot.
LG K40 Easy Home with App Drawer
One more Home with an app drawer is the “EasyHome”.It’s better suited for elderly persons who are not that tech-savvy and would prefer an easier user-interface.
To set EasyHome as the default Home, Long-Press an empty space and click “Home screen settings”.
Touch “Select Home”.
Choose the last option i.e. “EasyHome” and click “OK”.
The Home is now changed to “Easy Mode”.
The icon size is increased for better visibility. Direct-dial widgets are added to the home screen.
Tap the app drawer icon to view all apps.
We can add a contact shortcut using the “Add button”.
Tap add and select your favorite contact.
“411 & More” contact is added.
We can text or call this number using this home screen shortcut.
