    A few weeks ago my phone ran an update, and since then I always have this little magnifying glass icon on the screen, no matter what. Its for some search engine. It can be moved around the whole edge of the screen but I can't figure out how to delete this feature. Any help?
    Long clicking on it does not help and it does not open a seperate, new tab in the tab manager.

    It's an app you have downloaded. I had the same problem and it was an app called photo collage. Hope you get it sorted

    From apps photo editor you have downloaded, go to its settings, tap floating search window and make it off. Floating search window will disappear.

    Tap on the hour glass so the next screen pops up. On far top right there is a settings symbol. Click on it and uncheck enable. Voila, done. Thankful as heck I found this.

    Good luck
