    What is this?

    What ho one and all,

    Have a Samsung J5 Galaxy with Android 7. I have a Sudoku app installed, and the play screen has this little thing on the right. I make is difficult to select the adjacent cell, as I always manage to open something instead.

    What is it? What does it do and how can I remove it?

    Thanks and toodle pip

    You need to disable BadgeProvider. That's specific to Samsung phones. The steps may be slightly different depending on your Android version.

    Thanks for the links and suggestions. I first turned of a couple of background running rubbish but that made no difference. From one of the links, I discovered that this 'button' is called Game tools.' Disable that, but again, no difference.

    Then another link told me that I can drag it to the top of the screen; that worked. It is now running but hidden and if I want to access, have to drag from the top.

    Great, that make is easier to activate the cell without every-time, activating Game Tools.

    Many thanks for the advice.

    You might also be able to disable this overlay entirely if you want to - things like these usually can be turned off from the settings.
