Default missing gallery icon

running 4.1.2 on a Verizon - Samsung SIII. Just started using the camera but I have no gallery icon to pick up the pictures. The wife's SIII has it and works great. How do I get the gallery icon and functionality back. I'm not worried about the pictures.

I'm not familiar with your phone ... but you might try long press on the home screen to get your app drawer and find the gallery icon. Long press on the icon should bring it to the home screen.

Default Thanks - but no cigar!

Harry - thanks for the suggestion. My problem is that the gallery icon is NOT present in the pages of applications that I have. It just isn't anywhere on my SIII at this time.

I take it, you tried with shutting off the phone and restarting it again.

So, if your problem is furthermore present, there are two options for a work around

1 Use a better gallery like QuickPic, free in Play Store.

2 Install EStrongs File Explorer and open it. Tap on AppMrg (app manager), button change to All, tab on All.
The go to your gallery and have a long press on its name. On the pop up menu choose Shortcut.
Now your gallery's icon should be on your home screen again

Default I'm up and working - Thanks

Harry:

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, I had turned it off and even had removed the battery (I have to do this if and when the unit hangs up for network capabilities).
I did get quickpic and loaded the camera app and it works fine. Just for grins, I did try the second method of installing the ESsrongs file explorer and doing what you said; however, there was no icon with the name Gallery. It went from "Galaxy S3" to "gmail."

Hey, it works! Thanks for the assistance.
