    No Apps Button, No Apps Drawer, No Long Press

    Hi all. I just moved to China and bought a Xiao Mi phone (Model HM2LTE-CMCC) to use with China Mobile. It is running Android 4.4.4.



    I am trying to set up my homepages as I like them. However, there is no Apps button and there is no Apps Drawer. Furthermore, there is no Long Press on the home screens.



    I tried installing a 3rd-party apps launcher, but it hung when I launched it. I uninstalled it.


    Any idea how I can get my apps button back so I can set things up the way I like?


    Thanks much.

    P.S. Losing my mind.


    ALSO, if I try to move an icon that is on my home page, all the others move as well. It's like herding cats.

    I am not familiar with your device - did you have an Apps icon / drawer access and it is somehow just not there? Or was there not one at all...

    A last resort would be a factory reset (only if you cannot find a way to add back the apps icon and it was previously there)...

    Hopefully someone familiar with the device will drop in with some suggestions...

    Good luck and welcome to the forum...

    Thank you for the suggestion. I am not sure it had these, just assumed it would. It is version 4.4.4.
