    Default How do I get rid of this big arrow next to my keyboard?



    I don't know how I got this big arrow to appear next to my keyboard, but I can't get it to go away. Restarting didn't help. When I rotate the phone horizontally, it disappears. Help, please.

    Is it the backspace key?

    When I tap it, it flips to the other side.

    Welcome to the forums. Your photo is broken, so I'm not sure what arrow you are referring to. I initially thought "he's not talking about the backspace or enter keys, is he?" but you mention it flips to the other side, so I'm not sure.

    What keyboard are you using? If it's just stock/default, what phone do you have?

    I'm using the default keyboard on a Sprint LG Optimus G. I've had this phone for about 2 months and this big arrow has just recently appeared. I'll try again with the photo. Does this work:

    I'm using the stock keyboard on a Sprint LG Optimus G. Attempting to get a picture up.... Maybe it would just be easier to download a different keyboard?

    Do a long press on the arrow and see if something pops up.

    Perhaps it's from something you've installed

    Photo, is still needed then.
    If it's not part of the keyboard, it's probably from something you've installed.

    Unless someone with the same issue sees this thread, a photo is the only way we'll know what you're asking about.

    If that photo doesn't post, then here's a link to it. Sorry for my incompetence.

    Ok I just checked the manual for your phone and there is no mention or photo of this.

    If like you said it just started.
    Then you should look at anything you installed just before it started.

    Any, app, widget, anything you've installed from the Google Play store, especially if you got an app from anywhere else

    Is it by chance a way of accessing your clipboard or search history? I noticed that the keyboard has a search key and not the enter key.
    Or maybe it is a way for one to switch from lefty to righty.

    I just seen that the Note 2 has a single handed use setting and has a large tab with an arrow (although pointed the other direction). Check your settings for single handed or small hand settings.
    So it may well be for right/left hand orientation.

    Yup. I think it is for single handed use because of the large screen. Heres an address to the article.
    Nice feature though.

    You can probsly find the setting under "Languge and Input" or something like that.
    Let me know if that is it.

    Good detective work.
    I read a manual for the phone online and it did not show that arrow or settings.

    Oh well, this has been a great thread, mystery and suspense. :-)

    I had the same problem and just figured it out... Go under settings >> language and input >> click the wheel next to lg keyboard to change specific settings for that particular key board >> and deselect ONE HAND KEYBOARD and BOOM problem gone!!!!

    One thing you could do is slide from one side to the next on the homerow (asdfghjkl) if it doesn't Work at first, do it a couple times, it should work, that's how i got mine to go back

    I know this is old, but I don't see an answer and I finally figured it out. If you go to your 'Settings', click 'Language and Input', and scroll down to your LG keyboard, click the 'Settings' Icon next to it and it'll give the option to turn off your 'One Hand Keyboard'. This creates the arrow that serves as a backspace i believe. I unchecked that option and problem solved. Hope this helps!
