    I've been trying to delete icons from my home screen and I can't seem to find a trash bin on the corner at the top or anywhere to do so. Only thing that happened was that little window pops up with the three or four choices, one being delete shortcut but doesn't explain how to do so.

    Welcome to the forums. What happens if you just tap the 'delete' option on that menu?

    just click the delete shortcut on the pop up menu, that will remove the shortcut from your home screen.

    Hold down the icon you want to delete and a pop up menu will come up and you just hit uninstall

    Hi guys
    What if the popup menu doesn't show at all?
    I have this problem and I don't know how to delete icons from my homescreen. Is there a way to turn on the pop up menu?

    Are you holding steady without moving (once you touch and hold the icon).

    Sorry for the stupid question, but I've assisted someone with shaky hands with the same problem (elderly).

    Edit: and another person whose touches did not register on long press. She have to use a "touch pen".

    No no no...that will uninstall the app. They just want to delete the shortcut.

    Press and hold the icon, then press this.

    Have you disabled animations in the developer options?

    Yes
    The problem is solved. I had turned off animations in developer options, but only animation duration scale was responsible for the popup menu.
    Thanks!

    Glad it helped! Yes, just setting animator duration scale to 0.5x or 1.0x will solve the issue.
