I finally found how to get the "Tap to Answer" back on the phone. I think they took it away on Pi, and since I just got this phone with Android 10 - I assumed it wasn't there (and after looking with no avail). It is hidden, in my estimation, under Assistant Menu.

1st - Accessibility>Interaction and dexterity>Assistant Menu. Hard press Assistant Menu - takes you to a new menu. Then you unfortunately have to turn on the Assistant menu>Single tap to swipe. So we have to have the Assistant menu (a little button) on the screen or as a side button in order to keep the "tap to Answer" on. I made it be a side button and made it transparent so I don't notice it because I won't use it. Now, I can tap to answer calls, to dismiss alarms ect. !!! Hope this helps anyone else that has been looking and hoping to get that function back.

Thanks for your tip , it was available since pie , but you had small circle menu would appear until you drag it to the top and placed it on the X . I remember going over this in Note 9 forums at the time.

It doesn't seem to be able to be taken off now. I tried to drag it, but no X shows up. I have it floating on the side, barely able to be seen.If I could get rid of it, that would be great, but if not, I'll just keep it.
