Cannot remove icons from home screen

    This is for the Lenovo Tab M8 (8 inch tablet ). I am having an odd problem. I cannot remove icons from the home screen because there is no remove or trash indicator anywhere when I move the icon around. Saw a post complaining of the same problem from a couple of years ago and the suggestion was to use a different launcher. They tried with Google Go but didn't solve the problem. I installed Nova ... still can't find a remove indicator.

    Any ideas?

    Update ( can't edit or remove my post): with the Nova launcher I'm able to remove icons - there's a pop-up menu when long pressing the icon.

    Did you try that with the original launcher?

    Yes, there's no option.

    And did you long press, then attempt to move the icon to the far top or bottom of the screen?

    On some devices, I have seen where the option to delete or to place into a folder only appear after you have taken control amd moved the icon.

    Hi @droidros, did you try restarting your tablet before changing launchers?

    I have the Lenovo M10 and it does strange things at times, and the first thing I do is a roboot and up to now it has cleared the various glitches.

    :)

    After installing and using the Nova launcher, I happened to return to the stock launcher. Guess what? The little trash can appeared when I moved the icon. So I guess it was just a glitch.
