Thanks. I'm glad to stop seeing the recommended app icons, because most are ones I don't use at all ("recommendations"=advertising). But that doesn't allow recent app icons to display instead, which is what I'm looking for. Until the update I received today (Android 12, OneUI 4.1, I'm not entirely sure what was included because they never give details), pressing Recents button at lower right showed a row of recent app icons at bottom of the screen. Now I got this unchangeable set of recommended app icons instead. I hoped turning them off would bring back my recents but it doesn't--the space is just blank. I've learned that developers say they'll restore recent app icons in a future update, and that in the meantime you can configure an edge panel to show recent apps, which I hope others will find useful until they've reverted from this stupid change.
