Hi
I installed a lot of apps and it is very hard to find it on the home screen.
So I normally use the Finder to find the apps for me. However, since upgrade to Pie, It does not work anymore. The installed not show in the result.

I tried to search and find the setting but no luck
Please help.
thank you in advance

I use a third party launcher, and I don't have too many apps installed, so I can't relate to your situation. I'm just curious, what exactly is it you wanted us to help with? What are we supposed to do to make it work properly for you again? Let's say it was a feature that Samsung removed, like they did so many others; what were we supposed to do to make your life easier, again?

If you are using a Samsung smartphone, you must install all 3 Bixby upgrades in Samsung/Galaxy Store in order to continue using Finder to find apps.

When I go to the Play Store, there are a lot more than three Bixby apps available. Which ones do I have to upgrade?

I've installed another launcher that has a working search. I may downgrade to Oreo, which always worked fine for me.

Check to see if you hid it in the Samsung home launcher. That fixed it for me.

home screen settings > hide apps > remove hidden apps
