    I decided to share a photo so i went into gallery and clicked the share via option and selected messaging. Now when i go into gallery to delete or move photos the messaging icon appears along side the trash can and share option in the gallary bar, how can i remove it?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Try long-pressing that icon to see if it gives you the option to select a different app to be the favorite.

    But you can still bring up the list of all available apps to share, right? What happens if you select a different app--does that icon on the bar change afterwards? Or see if there's an option in that list to select as a favorite.

    I doubt that's possible--it's part of the app.

    That's a common feature in many apps. The only way to remove that icon could be deleting data in settings - apps (or uninstalling the app, of course). Maybe resetting apps preferences could do the trick as well. Any possible solution would be like using a missile to kill a fly too much work to get things back.

    And be aware, any of those actions will be a temporary fix, next time you share a photo from the gallery a new icon will be there.
