There is such a thing as called “App Drawer”. It goes pre-installed on almost any Android device. Now here is the guide on how to use it:

You go to the main menu. At the top of the screen, there is a search bar with three dots that you have probably never noticed before.


You click on those 3 dots and then choose the “settings” section. By the way, depending on the model of your Android, this mini-menu may vary and there can be more sections. Always choose screen settings.
