    This new feature showed up on my phone, starting with a spray of icons from the corner of I touched my phone some certain way. Now it's become a floating button that overlays my screen and is somehow always in the way. I'd like to be rid of it. I don't find any control for it or anything. Help, please?

    Welcome to the forums. That sounds similar to the swipe option included in ES File Explorer and other apps. I'd recommend you to create a free account here at Android Central, so you can reply on your own thread and post an screenshot. This way it will be easier for us to help you out.

    What phone do you have?

    Could you please post a screenshot of what you're seeing?

    Here's a screenshot. It's that little gray circle on the right. And it opens up the second screenshot of I touch it. Gah!

    Thanks for registering! Yeah, that definitely looks like the swipe option in ES File Explorer. You can disable it in the app settings or, even better, uninstall it.
