    There's a setting in Accessibility that causes this error. You will need to go to Settings - Accessibility - Vision - Show button shapes. Disable that setting, Show Button Shapes, and you should be all set.
    Yes that worked on my S8 thankyou EchoJon. I note that a large number of people have experienced the same issue. I am wondering why this 'feature' is there in the first place, or is it actually a bug that needs fixing by Samsung

    Very quick and simple solution that I never would have found without this site.
    BTW it came up as the top link on the google search I did.
    "unable to download content in show button shapes Galaxy S8 plus"
    Funny thing is that I am a member of this community..

    Well done EchoJon!!!

    I can't disable my "Show Button Shapes". Is there another accessibility setting that is preventing me from changing it? I'm trying to change my theme and the Samsung theme store is not letting me because this vision accessibility is on.

    Ok, I may have found a solution to the problem. This is [NOT] an official fix (yet?), and far as I know, this is what worked for my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 running the recently pushed Android Oreo by Sprint. Having mentioned that I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, this could help those of you who are experiencing issues with your Samsung devices, assuming you're running Nougat or Oreo, using Touchwiz or other app launchers such as Apex or Nova.

    1. If you are using a different launcher, find your way back to Touchwiz, which is your Samsung devices default launcher. You have never installed another launcher on your device, you are ready for the next step.

    2. Go to your app drawer and click the three dots on the right upper corner of your screen.

    3. Click the menu item that says "home screen settings".

    4. Once you're in the home screen settings, click "App Button"

    5. Select "Hide app buttons".

    I'm not sure of the home screen settings can be found in the actual system settings button. After spending a couple of hours looking for a solution, I don't remember seeing a link to the home screen settings. I provided screenshots with notes in them. I hope this post helps somebody.

    I'm assuming that only Samsung users are experiencing this issue, updating their themes via the Samsung theme store.



    - Call me Roger, maybe.

    Late response, but hopefully this can help others who have this problem. I haven't seen this issue yet, but have an idea of what it could be.

    The Show Button Shales option is greyed out when a theme is applied. I would try applying the theme named Default, then check and see if the setting can be disabled. It should fix the problem.

    Hope this helps!
