I am able to find an app on Google Play Store using my laptop but when I search for it on my tablet, it's not there. (It happens to be called Samsung Smart Switch, but I don't know if that matters.) Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thank you again

No disrespect but Smart Switch was installed on my new tablet which I bought yesterday.

Swipe to the right or left and see if it shows up on another screen. Often when I add a new app it will show up on another page.

I misunderstood that you don't see it on the apps showing on the screen. I thought you couldn't find it on googleplay. (I need to read better!) You can always open the "app drawer" , long press the item and then select "add to home screen". To open the app drawer, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

To open the app drawer, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. I posted this above your question.

Google play will show you a) new apps to install b) installed apps that need updating - an app will not show if there is no update.
