    Samsung puts Google icons in one folder. I moved the Gmail icon to my home screen. Is there a way to COPY it back ? Don't want to move it back. I think that's how it got lost the first time I tried to change something.

    Not sure I follow. Where did you find this folder. Usually the icon is generated by the app. But some home screen launchers and other apps will cache them.

    Samsung put's Google Apps in a folder, for lack of an Android term, I did an update and the G-mail app is back. I again moved to my Home Page. I thought I should just copy the icon. There is an Apps icon on my home page that is where I found the folder.
    Just looked and the G-Mail icon is back in the folder !!!! So all it did was copy, but took an hour+ to show that !!!
    HATE SMART PHONES although I like to play with them.

    Thanks for trying to answer my question.

    Your icon will always stay in your app drawer regardless if you move a shortcut to your home screen or not.
    If you remove it from your home screen it will stay in your app drawer.
