    Hello -

    Thought I'd managed to get rid of Flipboard.

    Now, however, if I swipe right from the Home screen (to access the screen to the left of it), something called "Briefing" now appears. This appears to be some sort of news feed, Son-of-Flipboard thing, and I don't want it.

    Anyway to make it go away?

    Thanks as always,

    On my Note 4, it's called Flipboad Briefing. Long press on your home screen > Select Home screen settings > uncheck Flipboard/Briefing. If you got rid of Flipboard the same way before, perhaps something brought it back. Did you recently do a factory reset?

    Thank you, Nahoku.
    Hmmm, no factory reset done. Admittedly, I am fumbling around, changing stuff constantly - this is a new phone, and I'm constantly creating problems for myself.
