    Default Moving icons on home screen

    The tap and hold function no longer works on my Ss g4. Once my finger touches the icon on any home screen, the app opens immediately. This stops me from moving any icons on any screen.

    Are you using TW or a third party launcher? Looks like the lock desktop option is on.

    Thank you for your quick reply. I am not sure. I don't understand TouchWiz that well or launchers. Although I do play around with my settings I may have changed something unknowingly.

    I'm almost sure that there's no such option in TW. So if you're not using another launcher another possibility could be this. Go to settings, accessibility, touch & hold delay and make sure it's short. Having it long can cause your problem.

    Yes, it is on the shortest, 0.5 seconds.

    I don't know of any other settings that could do that, just other apps locking the icons.

    I assume that you just tried the normal things like soft reboot and battery. Some people recommend wiping the cache partition. Nothing is going to be lost, but I've no idea if that could solve the problem.

    You hit the nail on the head! Yes, I had soft started the phone several times, but until you mentioned it, I had not cleaned out my cache in quite a while. I went in and took care of that and now icons move as they ought to. Thank you for such a quick reply and sticking with me through this.
