    man in circle icon opens a screen controlling volume up and down, power, home and pinch. Floats over all screens and gets in the way. Doesn't show up as an app or a widget.

    Go to settings menu, then accessibility. Scroll down to physical and motor. There's a choice called universal touch, just turn if off and the icon disappears.

    The instructions on how to remove it were perfect. On the LG G3, Universal Touch is called Touch Assistant! Thanks, for your help.

    How do I get it off my screen so it won't come back on?

    On my G5 it's under:
    Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility features shortcut - toggle to on > Touch assistant - toggle to on and everything else toggle to off.
    Go back to the home screen. When you triple click the home button it should appear and disappear. Once it is gone, go back into the settings and turn the touch assistant off, then turn the Accessibility features shortcut itself off. Make sure you turn it off in the right order! It should be gone now. Good luck!
    It took me quite a while to figure it out because the button would just hover in the background semi transparent but not go completely away.

    Ok is this the same as this irritating floating menu? I can't get this to go away either and it floats at top of screen on Nougat just under notification bar and gets in the way.

    It is a gray icon with two arrows inside a box pointing towards two corners. When you toggle it, more buttons appear:
    Read screen out loud (i.e. what screen is showing)
    Power button
    Volume up and down
    And a push to scroll down button
