    I often lose the Drawer icon from Home screen after switching to a different theme. How do I get it back??

    With what Launcher?

    Generally speaking, if you apply a new theme, the dock will reset itself.

    Did you accidently swipe downwards on the drawer? In ADW, if you swipe down in the drawer it brings up a 'hidden drawer' which has nothing in it unless you put stuff there, but when it's blank it looks like it has disappeared altogether.

    Try swiping up where the drawer should be and see if it comes back. If not, check the ADW settings and disable the hidden one

    Does ADW not offer a backup and restore function like LauncherPro?

    Yes it does, it's in Menu > More > ADW Settings > Backup and Restore

    Hadn't seen that, I'd only had ADW for a couple of hours before posting :)

    Hi, this has just happened to me, and this was the correct answer. Thank you.


    You said you had a way of bringing it back, but you didn't share the way. Please do, whenever you have some information. Other people might have your same problem anytime and they could use the same help that you needed. It's all about sharing. That's how we get better.

    Thanks.
