    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? You need to register in order to post a screenshot: http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...d-central.html

    If you're certain you've turned off the Accessibility Menu shortcut, then see if it goes away if you change the wallpaper.

    There are dozens of posts on the www telling us how to get rid of that little man. I have gone to:
    • Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Menu
    • Settings > Accessibility > Magnification


    and turned those off, but he is STILL THERE.

    If you tap it, does it still bring up the Accessibility Menu?

    If I tap the little man it brings up a white background at the bottom of the screen, with 2 icons "Switch Access" and "Boldbeast Call recorder." I have attached another screenshot, that does NOT show what I mentioned above, but take a look at the red square face with a diagonal line through it at the very top of the screen.Delete little man lower right-screenshot_20211204-173855.jpg

    Sometimes I see a white "button" at the very top of the screen that reads "MENU," but I don't know what makes it appear. If I tap "MENU" I see several items: Brighter, Dimmer, just basic Android function buttons.

    At times the square red face at the top of the screen becomes blue, without a diagonal line through it.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Which phone is this? (I plan to move this thread out of the Introductions forum, so I'll move it either to the specific subforum for your phone, or just the General Help forum.)

    Sorry for all the posts. My phone is a T-Mobile REVVL V+ 5G.

    I moved this to the General Help forum, since we don't have a dedicated subforum for the REVVL. I also cleaned up a couple of the posts, since you had included a few duplicate screenshots.

    Does this persist in Safe Mode? https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...%20a%20problem. I would wonder if some app you installed (like maybe that Boldbeast Call Recorder) might be messing things up. Try uninstalling it temporarily.

    Try going into safe mode then back out , sometimes can fix weird situations like this , another is check device administrator see if anything there besides find my phone , if all is good then factory reset.

    Yes, you were so right. Safe Mode, a normal boot, and a few preferences made, I got just the keyboard I wanted.

    Thank you Mustand7757!

    Oops! I had two problems going on. Safe Mode then standard mode gave me the keyboard with special characters above the keys, but I still have the little man.

    If you have an appetite for it, more help with the little man would be great. The keyboard was a very helpful thing.

    Thank you

    Can you clarify -- did the Accessibility shortcut go away while in Safe Mode?

    I'm afraid that I have already mixed topics in this thread... but to complete the thread I already messed up, and because I don't know how to post to another forum, I add the screenshot below.

    In another post I have asked for How To Use AndroidCentral help.

    Screenshot: see the special characters above all of the letters, and the row of large numbers. That is the keyboard I wanted.

    Accessibility menu is OFF. Mangification is OFF. See 2 screenshots attached. I still have the little man after going into Safe Mode and then booting up normally, did not help.

    The Accessibility icon and the 'Menu' window that you posted on another thread are probably caused by a third party app. My bet is on that call recorder, BoldBeast.

    I agree, see what happens if you uninstall BoldBeast. Also, try turning off Switch Access.
