So you're a global admin in your Office 365 tenant, and your exited to add custom tiles to the app launcher. So you follow the four top rated guides from your google search which all says basically the same [1] [2] [3] [4]. Just follow the link to "View all my apps" which is supposed to be located at the bottom of the app launcher.

As it turns out, this isn't the case anymore. Today we can see the Get More Apps link instead, leading to a totally different page.

Get More Apps

Frustrating as this may be, the real URL is There is another solotion, which isn't described too well. But you have another option. In the new App Launcher experience, you can see all your apps in the App Launcher using the link ALL.

All Apps

At the bottom of this screen (you may need to scroll) you see the Other apps section where your custom apps live. From there you can pin the app to your Home screen of the App Launcher, which is what you see when you click on the start of the App Launcher. Pin it to home, and all is solved. Both of these methods work the same.
