Show Icons in Actionbar on Android, don’t show in Overflow

  1. You have to use the AppCompat Library ? Activity must extend AppCompatActivity:

    MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity

  2. Make sure the theme is from AppCompat in AndroidManifest.xml:

    <activity android:name=".MainActivity" android:label="@string/app_name" android:theme="@style/Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar"> </activity>

  3. Use app:showAsAction in mwnu_mail.xml:

    ``` <menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto">

    </menu> ```
