Annoying messages in black boxes that stay displayed too long and are not movable.

Many apps seem to display messages in a black rounded corner rectangle on top of what I'm doing.  These boxes are not movable and remain displayed far too long.  They often cover up something I need - like my keyboard.  I've searched on options for balloons, bubbles, etc and have tried turning off many options but have not affected these messages at all.  What are they called and how can I turn them off?  They should at least be movable!  Duh!

Thanks!  That is what I needed and I have now done some research on "toast notifications".  It seems the implementation on my Note 10 is extremely poor because these notifications stay displayed for quite a long time and cover up things I need to click on.  I found an Android style guide that said 3.5s should be the default display time.  In the Accessibility settings I found I could change the display time but the minimum was 10s.  The Default is obviously much longer.

Same here, only I have a new s22 without the pen. Annoying as all get out! AT&T guy didn't know how to fix. Thank you very much for your post. 10s is much better than 1 or 2 minutes. You'd think Samsung could would should fix this!
