    I can't seem to rid of this thing that pops up whenever I slide from the lower corners of my screen upwards, it's getting really annoying with my games as well as other applications where I'm trying to do something, please help. Only from the bottom of my screen, unable to do anything from the top, always the bottom though. And unable to find the app affiliated so any clues would help with the disabling of said app.

    Could you post a screenshot of what you get when you swipe up from the bottom corners, and of what the screen looks like before swiping up? - https://forums.androidcentral.com/ge...d-central.html

    You'll need to join as a member of the forums to post the screenshot - see this link for instructions on how to join Android Central.

    Welcome to the forums. That sounds like the 'swipe' feature included in some free apps. The usual culprits are ES File Explorer, Clean Master (or any app by Cheetah Mobile or GO), Photo Editor, Z Camera and some keyboard apps.

    @3than Tyl3r Welcome to the site!

    Can you go through your apps and try to identify any that look like they might do this? Or, if you can post screenshots of your list of installed apps one of us can try to help you identify the app causing this.

    Thanks for registering! Yes, that's definitely the 'swipe' menu that I mentioned before. It could be tricky to pin the culprit since many free apps are starting to include it. We have a few threads about the same issue, this is one of them.

    Do you have any free antivirus/security/cleaner/booster app or any call blocker?

    By the way, what phone do you have? You could check which apps have the 'draw over other apps' permission enabled and probably the culprit will show up there.

    Here is the draw over other apps permissions.... and the latest apps ive downloaded. Some of these were after it started showing up. Like the Polaroid camera one.

    Very difficult to know for sure which app is pushing that menu. You could start switching the permission off for some of the apps that you downloaded and see if it disappears. There are several reports of an app called 'Photo Editor' that includes this swipe menu, begin with that one and tell us how it goes.

    I don't have a photo editor besides the one that was on the phone in the gallery when u click on the photo and can edit it there. If it was that, you'd think if would've been doing it the whole time I've used the phone since beginning of Jan.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if that Photo Editor on your screenshot was an stock app or something you downloaded.

    Try disabling the permission for your downloaded apps and see if you can pin the culprit. Also, when that menu opens check your running services and memory usage. This could give you some clues about which app is pushing it. See this guide for more ideas.
