Everytime I pin an app I get a "Screen is pinned" green ScrollView and have to tap the "Got it" button.
At first, I thought it was just some kind of "getting started" thing, but after a few months it's still showing up every single time.
Since I'm pretty sure I "Got it", is there a way to disable this warning/info ?

Here's a screenshot of the ScrollView.

  • @noodlesup - you cannot disable that directly. May be the answer below can do that. I thought nobody in this world uses screen pinning feature ;) Jan 22, 2017 at 6:50

What device are you using? You may (or may not) be able to remove this message via your stock settings.

In any case, to remove this message you'll need root access and an app called EhancedToast.

This will allow you to select the toast messages that you don't want to show up. For example: Screen Pinned, Screen Unpinned and messages of the sort.

Requirements For EnhancedToast Method

  1. Xposed Framework (one that's compatible with your device, obviously).
  2. Install the EnhancedToast Xposed Module.

From your phone (using a Terminal Emulator app - Root Required)

appops set android TOAST_WINDOW deny

From PC (adb required) but no root needed

adb shell appops set android TOAST_WINDOW deny

Please let me know if these methods work(ed) for you and good luck!


  • Thanks for the detailed guide ! I'm using an Xperia Z5 Compact. So there's no other way than rooting the phone ? It seems pretty overkill for a notification :(

  • @Ben Baltz, please stay on topic and stick to the topic at hand. Constructive answers and sources help best. Also, pasta is a food. Jan 21, 2017 at 19:24

    Well you could at least give credit to the original poster rather than claiming this as your answer. Original: android.stackexchange.com/a/144146/205602

    Anyhow, this doesn't answer the question. This technique suppresses the white toast message that pops up, but does nothing about the ugly turquoise "screen is pinned, got it" message this question is talking about. Sep 21, 2018 at 21:00
