    Default 3 issues with new Android KitKat 4.4.2 for Samsung galaxy S4

    Hi I am using Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500. Recently i have updated my S4 to KitKat 4.4. But after updating it to 4.4.2 i faced some of the following issues;

    1. I created new folder in my Apps Menu, but now m unable to delete that new folder. The folder is empty but still m unable to delete it. I even tried renaming it or keeping the folder name blank. But still not able to delete it. I also tried, long pressing on the folder, but the only option I am receiving is the Cancel.

    2. Previously i was able to hide the installed app but now i dont see the Hide App option.

    3. The globe option from my keyboard disappear. I have selected other language like Hindi and Marathi. But still the globe icon is not displayed. There is no other keyboard installed.

    All of the above issues were not found before the update, but since i updated my S4 to KitKat 4.4.2, this are the problems occured.
    Please help me with this.

    Thank You

    Go to "Apps"
    Hit "Menu" [Capacitive] Button
    Select "Edit"
    Long Press Folder
    Drag to "Remove"

    2. Previously i was able to hide the installed app but now i dont see the Hide App option.
    Disable them or throw them all in one folder to de-clutter your apps list.

    They probably removed it because some people who aren't necessarily technically inclined were hiding apps and then forgetting how to get the apps back. I can see the logic in removing that option. Hiding neither uninstalls nor disables the app. It is not really much more useful than simply throwing them all together in a folder to get them out of the way.

    3. The globe option from my keyboard disappear. I have selected other language like Hindi and Marathi. But still the globe icon is not displayed. There is no other keyboard installed.
