ok if you go to file manager applications there was a section for 'education' next to games, office etc etc
i accidently deleted it and now its missing in the menu. but when i log into the super mode where i have full access its there
in file manager. How do i get that menu item back or is it deleted for good. (i actually dont want it ironically but in the future
if this happens to one i do need i want to know how to get it back). if that makes sense.
