I received the Android 10 update for my Samsung phone. Unfortunately, this seems to have updated my keyboard layout by placing an ugly and almost empty bar at the bottom of my screen below the keyboard. There is a button on the left to select a specific keyboard and another on the right to hide the keyboard.
The problem is that I've already got muscle memory to hit the backspace at a specific place on the screen, but the changes have pushed everything upwards which prompts me to hit the new line/submit button instead. The same goes for almost any other key actually, but the former is the most irritating. I am also losing screen estate because of something that I would never use.
I can see an option in Settings -> General management -> Language and input -> On-screen keyboard that is titled "Show keyboard button" and is turned on but the slider is disabled and I can't turn it off.
Also, if it matters, I am using a third-party keyboard (neither the Google one nor the Samsung one). The bar is there regardless of the chosen keyboard though.
Any help on getting rid of the bar would be greatly appreciated.
