    Smart?phone question.

    My Android phone (Samsung J2) used to have a search bar on the home screen. This has run away to somewhere that I cannot find.

    Any idea how to retrieve it?

    they're all different, and i don't android, but i'd guess:

    long-press the background/homescreen and choose "add item/widget to desktop/workspace" from the menu that pops up.

    Umm on my Android (should be universal) go to the home screen, touch and hold anywhere on the screen and a 'widgets, wallpaper etc.' thing should appear, I'm guessing you'll find the search bar in there.

    Given that the Jobs fella has been dead for about six years...I doubt he showers at all
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    Apple is control freak, doesn't like it when you try to customize.

    Yup. There's nothing like supporting a company that deliberately avoids paying taxes and then builds a massive new building... Hang on! That sounds like destiny church cult.

    Exactly, planned obsolescence. Apple decides when you need a new phone.

    and decides what price you'll pay for crippled hardware and very limited recourse to fixing it...

    Release a new i-phone model.
