    For some reason when I hit the app button now all I get are 5 apps and 2 recently used apps. How do I get all my apps back? Not sure where to look for these settings. Thanks for any help!

    I read something about secure folder being involved in this issue.
    Try looking for that and see if helps you.

    You are using secure folder. This is your issue.

    Maybe apps are hidden?
    Go into all apps, open menu, see option for hidden apps, or option for display all apps

    There's no option for display all apps. It has something to do with Google Now launcher and secure folder but no matter what I do I cannot get the secure folder unlocked. I was told by Samsung to uninstall Google Now and use another launcher. But there has to be a way to unlock the folder

    Yes you will need to uninstall google now launcher. Its not compatible with the KNOX security thats on the phone.

    I had the same issue. I was a major fan of google now and with this phone being my first Samsung device, I was a bit upset that I could nort use google now.

    I now use nova prime and the google plugin so when I swipe right, i get to the google launcher new feed.

    You can research this online to find out why you can't use it and a work around to maybe trying to use it, but it requires some finagling.

    Thanks for the response. I love Google Now so I guess I have to find another Launcher. Hate Touch Wiz. thanks for the links as well. I'll be doing a lot of research!

    Nova prime is a fantastic launcher! I have the same functionality as google now with a few extra perks. Defiantly give it a try.
