KDE Connect pointless icon

I’ve just installed KDE Connect on my Android phone. There is an icon that is permanently showing and hugs the side of the screen. I can move it around but it doesn’t seem to do anything and I can’t get rid of it.

What is it supposed to do? And why is there no option to remove it as it’s very invasive?

I don’t know why this is enabled for you (or I just don’t remember seeing this myself), but it is from an accessibility feature in Android. iirc KDE Connect uses accessibility access for some of its features.

You can turn this icon off off in Settings> Accessibility > KDE Connect > disable the shortcut option


Thanks so much. I’ve turned this off now.

for some reason this came enabled on my lenovo tablet but not enable for my samsug phone

i’ve been wondering how to get rid of this thing for weeks now.

thanks for the tip.
