Cant Uninstall apps via drag and drop

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi, 

 

for about 6 month I amunable to uninstall apps via the UI. When long pressing an app i want to delete both the "remove" for from the home screen as well as the "uninstall" appear.

When moving the app to the uninstall corner the animation closes and nothing else happens.

 

The only way I have to uninstall an app is to do it over the play store.

 

Does anyone else have this issue and knows of a solution?

Can you remove apps while the device is in safe mode?

Long pressing does NOT work, as stated in the original post.

This is what happens.

1. Long press.

2. Menu appears, includes the headings "select" "remove" "uninstall".

3. Drag icon over to appropriate heading.

4. Before you get to the menu, it vanishes, leaving you unable to remove the icon.

They are not asking to uninstall only, they are also asking to remove an icon from the screen, not the entire app.

Basically the latest UI you'd long press the app you'd like to remove and a menu pops up. Select uninstall. There isn't animation anymore of the process, the icon disappears, done.
