    When I wake my phone up, the homepage has multiple calculator (or calendar) icons even though I haven't used those apps. They appear automatically while the phone is sleeping. How do I stop this?

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you have multiple calculator or calendar apps installed? If so, did you purposely install them, or did they get installed on their own?

    Show us a screenshot of those icons: http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...d-central.html. You'll have to register on this forum first. https://forums.androidcentral.com/as...community.html

    Hello. I do not have multiple calculator or calendar apps, only the ones pre-installed. Here is a screenshot.

    That's odd. Maybe it's the beaver? Jk.
    Delete all the extras, clear the cache partition and reboot. Put phone in safe mode and see if the issue returns. If yes, factory reset. If no, start looking for the app causing it. Good luck to you.

    Those are good ideas. Here's how to boot into Safe Mode: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/l...4vl/safe-mode/

    Just FYI, those are shortcuts, not apps. The apps are in the app drawer (round con - bottom left). You can just long-press the shortcuts you don't want, then delete them.

    That's true, but I wonder what's creating those shortcuts? OP mentioned that they seem to get created when the phone is not in use.

    Thank you for the suggestions. I will try that. I know I can delete those shortcuts, but, as B. Diddy says, what is causing that to happen? And FYI, it's not a beaver, it's a woodchuck and I doubt he is responsible.

    I dunno, he sure looks like he's up to no good.
