    Welcome to Android Central! Can you see if the app is pinned? https://www.tomsguide.com/news/samsu...pop%2Dup%20box.

    rebooting is a pain but it works. However, my issue is that the back buttons or any other app will not launch. This happens with google maps while i am navigating as well.

    Ok, did you check to see if app pinning/pin screen is turned on?

    it is still the same issue. I tried to reset everything (didn't do factory reset). Also, tried the pin/pinning if it was on or off (it's off). I can select the settings button but can't make anything work. Tried google talk feature to open another app but still the same issue.

    You try gestures instead of buttons?

    You're using the stock One UI launcher, and not a 3rd party one, right?
