    I recently migrated my apps from my S6 to my new S8. I believe I used the Samsung app to restore. Not all of the apps came over for some reason. I cleaned a lot of them up, but am left with 15 or so icons for apps that don't exist. I moved them all to one folder because when I hold the icon and look for uninstall, there is no option! They are grey/white android logo icons that have no name and do nothing. I've wiped the cache partition and they're still there. How do I get rid of them?

    Can you long press on 1 at a time and select uninstall?
    What launcher are you using?

    My only options are to select, add, or move with long press. Using the stock launcher.

    It's a folder I created just to drag them somewhere and get them out of the way.
