I'm on a Galaxy S6 and recently updated to Android 6. Now in every folder on my home screen I have this annoying plus icon (http://i.imgur.com/SUZSJvv.png) which is meant to select apps to add to the folder instead of having to drag them in one by one.

How can I remove this? I haven't changed the UI from default.

  • Whoops, don't know why that didn't work. – heidi Apr 5 '16 at 7:46
  • is this with every s6 marshmallow, if it really bothers you, flash the stock firmware again, or get a go launcher. – Tarinder Apr 5 '16 at 10:24
  • Can you be more specific? I don't know what flashing is but I'm pretty sure I haven't touched the stock firmware. What is a go launcher? – heidi Apr 5 '16 at 13:42
  • if you havent touch the stock firmware, forget what i said about flashing the phone. Go launcher is an user interface for your phone, you can download it from playstore. for example:samsung has touchwiz which moslty everyone hates, so they use launchers, try it, it may help :) – Tarinder Apr 5 '16 at 13:50

Edit: Turns out this doesn't work anymore after you restart the device... [Rename the folder to "Google" and the plus will disappear. Then you can rename the folder to whatever you like and it won't come back.]

    If you've realised your answer is wrong, you can delete it yourself. Then other visitors will be able to see this question still lacks an answer. – Dan Hulme Jul 3 '16 at 7:49
