Which device are you using @Ozzy1

 

App shortcuts can typically be moved into folders or onto another Homescreen via long holding on the app icon and move it with your finger whilst still holding down.

 

A pop up box on my s8 on Nougat gives the option to remove shortcut. 

 

To add > Some apps cannot be removed / uninstalled and some can. 

 

Sometimes a device glitches which is normally helped by turning the device off and on and or clearing the apps data and cache. 

 

 




Current Phone ~

Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G SM-N9860_256Gb SnapDragon 865+

Yes, I have the same problem with you.

The Trash Icon on Homescreen is not showing off when I tap and hold the apps for a long press on them, so the apps shortcuts and widgets just dragging around ..

 

My samsung is galaxy A7 2017 with Nougat in it .

 

I find the way , here is Screenshot_20170917-003241.png

New update. Using Samsung 7. Cannot delete unwanted icons. Hold icon down, menu pops up to delete and disappears when I try to drag icon.  My settings menu doesn't have developer options.

Hi @Rsmith , You must follow this step to activated "Developer Option" on your setting menu : 

How to access developer settings on the Galaxy S7
  1. Launch the settings app from your Home screen or the app drawer.
  2. Tap on About Device. It's all the way down at the bottom of the menu.
  3. Tap on Software info.
  4. Tap on Build number 7 times.

Yes, these steps make Developer Options active, but playing with "Animator duration scale" has no effect on the problem - I still can't remove apps from home screen.

Hi @Dt6

If you're referring to the Google search bar then you can simply press and hold it and drag it to the top of the screen to the dustbin symbol.
