    Blue Box around app icon-screenshot_2013-09-13-06-57-29.jpg

    - - - Updated - - -

    There was supposed to be text with this screenshot. It went like this...

    Has anybody else ever seen this? And figured out what causes it?

    Occasionally, I get a blue box around the top left app icon on whatever screen Im on. See screenshot.

    Has anything changed recently? Updates to the system/ROM?

    Nah, I'm all stock so the last update I did was several months ago whenever the last official update came out.

    Try a reboot?

    It looks very much like the normal selection icon for when you're navigating around the screen using alternate controls.

    You can look in Settings -> Developer options, particularly in the Input and Drawing sections, to see if you have any of that stuff enabled.

    I've seen that highlight before when I was using my Dual-shock controller to navigate through the UI.

    hello, I know this is an old thread, but I'm having the exact same problem on my non-rooted note 3. the same blue box on the top left app icon, and it goes away if I touch the screen.
    It just started today after a factory reset...can you please tell me how you fixed it?

    Hello. New here, but this happened to me today and I fixed it without doing a reset.

    Tap what icon you need to select. When the box appears around it- tap it with two fingers. If you need to scroll, use two fingers for thay as well.
    You need to go into Settings- accessibility - vision . Make sure voice assistant is OFF!
    Took me a few tries to turn it off... what a pain it was.

    Sorry if this is a repost but I couldn't find any information on this myself. Hope it helps someone.

    Phil Thank You!
    I had exactly same problem. I took your advice and went to Accessibility - Vision, and it was on! I turned it off, blue box disappeared. Thank you!
