    My wife's Samsung S7 got out of the nothing two icons looking like three concentric white and grey circles, half the size of a normal icon, that can be placed anywhere along the right and left edges of the screen, and launch a screen of common applications alongside a different advertisement every time you happen to touch them. One can place them on the same spot of the screen. Unwanted and annoying, how to get rid of them? Help please!

    check the installed apps one by one. I think it's called "Floating Toucher".

    None of these solutions helped me or my wife, probably because we sent setting the little grey circle, but we're still getting the shortcut pop-up (OPs second screenshot) from tapping bottom left (or right) corner, or swiping from the center (even while running apps). Suggestions?

    I had to uninstall and app called "Cleaner" and the icon was part of the app. As soon as i uninstalled the app the circle was gone.
    I tried the other suggestions, however the apps everyone mentioned were not installed on my device. I hope this helps you and anyone else with this annoying app.

    I don't have any of these apps "any" of you spoke about and I've read thru all the comments. I actually haven't downloaded anything new and this stupid spinning annoying wheel just decided to pop up and annoy me every chance it gets. And because all I do is swipe on my phone that's pretty much 99.9% of the time. The only difference with what my wheel does is when I press each icon it actually directs me to the place of whatever icon I press and I never see any ads. So, whereas, I don't have the exact "issue" as everyone, I HAVE ESTABLISHED THIS DEEP HATRED FOR THIS HUGE INCONVENIENCE MY PHONE IS PUTTING ME THRU AND IF APPRECIATE ANY HELP FROM ANYONE ON what and where my particular issue is coming from. Thank you! Christy
