FYI, if you choose the alphabetical grid as the view type then the step #5(rearrange the app position) and #9(create new page) will not available.

So, the conclusion is: if you want to edit the apps menu then you should choose the customizable grid or alphabetical grid as the view type. Well, hope this helps :)
