How do I change my apps back to the normal icon on Android’s new Mobile?

  • November 26, 2022


In this article, we are going to discuss how you can change your apps back to the normal icons on Android’s new Mobile. There is no doubt that all the latest smartphones come with a set of apps such as Facebook, Gmail, Chrome browser, Outlook email, etc. However, the problem is when you want to install those apps from your old smartphone then it does not allow you to install them because the latest operating system does not allow it at all. So for example if you have an Android phone like Samsung Galaxy S5 or any other smartphone then every time when you want to install some app from your old mobile then it will ask for an update as well but never allows you to install any app.

Long press on the app icon you want to change.

A slider will appear, and you can choose between three sizes of icons.

In most cases, you’ll want to use the largest size available: they’re bigger, so they take up more space.

If you find that an icon is too small or large, tap “Resize” in the top right corner of the screen. This will bring up a list of options for resizing your icon.

You can choose from three different sizes for each size: large, medium, and small. To resize your icon, tap one of these sizes and then hold down on it so that its arrow points left or right until it fits into the space you have available (or tap a different size). If you don’t like any of these sizes, there are more options for customizing your own icon below this section.

A list of other apps will be shown, with a button saying “See More.”

Tap on that button, and you’ll see a list of all the apps in your mobile.

Tap on the app you want to change, then tap on the “Options” button in the top right corner.

In this menu, tap on the “Icon” section.

If you have more than one launcher, you will have to tap the icon at the top of your screen that says “Change to [name of current launcher].”

You can change your launcher’s icon to something else, but you need to have a launcher that supports the feature.

If you have more than one launcher, you will have to tap the icon at the top of your screen that says “Change to [name of current launcher].” Then you’ll be able to pick from a list of different icons for your home screen. If there’s an icon that matches your current launcher, select it and press OK. You’ll then see all of your apps in a grid view with their new icons on the left side and their old icons on the right side. Tap one to open it and set up whatever changes need to be made.

If you have just one launcher, tap the icon at the top of your screen that says “Open Launcher.” If you have more than one launcher, tap on “All Apps” and then select one from the list.

On an Android phone running Android 8 (Oreo) or higher, swipe down from the top of your screen and then tap on “Settings,” which is represented by three horizontal lines. In this section, tap on “Personalization.”

Tap “Home screen” under Personalization and then select any Launcher icon for your home page or app page.

Go to your app drawer and choose a new launcher.

If your launcher’s icon is not in the app drawer and you don’t have a backup of it, then you’ll have to go through the process of changing it manually.

To change your launcher’s theme and icon, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open your launcher and tap on the settings button (the gear icon) or just swipe over to the Settings page.

Step 2: Scroll down to “Themes” and tap on it.

Step 3: Tap on “Choose Theme”.

Step 4: On the next screen, choose any theme that is already installed on your phone. If no theme is available, then simply choose any other theme that you like.

To change your app icon, open the Launcher and go to the App Drawer. You’ll see three options: Home, Apps, and All. Choose an option and then tap the Edit Icon button at the bottom of your screen. This will bring up a new window where you can change the app icon. When you’re finished, just tap Save and Exit to return to your previous launcher.

Finish setting up your new launcher.

You’re done with the setup process, but you’re not quite ready to use it yet. Wait a few minutes and try out your new launcher. You’ll see a quick animation when you first open the app, but after that, things should work as usual.

Make sure everything is working right. Try opening an app or setting up a widget and then try again. If something isn’t working right, check the troubleshooting section below for help.

If none of these steps helps, check out our troubleshooter for Android launchers for advice on how to solve common problems with your launcher.

You’re almost done. Now you’re going to set up your new launcher.

Go back to the home screen of your phone and tap on the app icon of your launcher.

Tap on it and choose “settings.”

You’ll see a bunch of settings here, so scroll down until you find the “appearance” section.

Here’s what you want to do: Tap on any of these settings until it looks like this:

There are two things we want to change here: first, we want to make sure that all apps have an icon on their home screen; second, we want to change their color scheme so it doesn’t look too plain. All of this can be done by tapping on each setting until they look like this:

Now, all we have left is to set up our icons (they’re all in the same place). Go back into settings and find “icon pack” under “launcher.” Change it from blank (which means no icons) to whatever icon pack you got off Google Play Store (I used Holo Icon Pack).


You can easily change your app icons on an Android to a more personal sort, but doing so requires some finesse. The process to restore default icons is simpler as they are system-wide. So, let’s take a look at how you can switch both back and forth and make the change you want.

The app drawer on Android is a labyrinth of possibilities. Apps, shortcuts, nested folders–it can all get pretty deep. If you want to keep things nice and simple but still have quick access to a particular app or two, you can change your icon to the app’s icon instead of being linked straight to the app.
