    On Galaxy 10 - my app drawer had a 4 pages of apps previously. It now has 4 additional pages, each one containing one or two duplicate apps of what are on the older 4 pages. HOw do I get rid of them? I've found older posts that apply to a specific "Launcher," but I have no idea what that means, and am using only what the Samsung phone provides.

    The "launcher" is the app that provides your desktops and app drawer. So you are using Samsung's launcher, even if you hadn't realised. That's all it is really.

    Unfortunately I don't have a Samsung, and so don't know what app drawer features Samsung's launcher includes. Are there any other clues, such as titles on those extra pages? Otherwise we'll need to wait for someone who owns a recent Samsung to have a guess.

    Check settings > apps and see if you can locate the Samsung launcher, not sure what it might be called, but you'll want to clear the cache and see if that helps. It may not show up in apps. Anyway, just go to the app store and look for "launcher", and a plethora of apps will appear. Try some of them out, you can always go back via "default apps". I've played with a bunch. Fun stuff. Settled on, ironically, the Microsoft launcher.

    The launcher can argueably be one of if not the most important app on a device- it is how you interact with the phone.

    There are so many of them...
    personally, I chose the most efficient and simple one- and after a short learning curve it has revolutionized my devices.
