Hi everyone


I have a Sony Xperia Z3 (with Lollipop) and the following problem: When I first set up the device, there was a search bar when I entered the all apps overview. Unfortunately, this bar disappeared soon and I didn't find a way to get it back. Interestingly, when I recently changed the SIM, the bar reappeared but then disappeared again after a couple of days.


Can anyone tell me what's going on there? I figured it might deppend on the sorting (alphabetical, custom, most used, etc.) but none of them brought the bar back. Is there a setting to show or hide that apps search bar? If yes, where can I find it and how do I keep it from hiding it again?


Thanks for your help!

My S6 does not have an apps search bar. In either the apps tray or in the system setting applications manager. This must be a Sony feature. You might try their forums. http://talk.sonymobile.com/
