Kodi media center *Icon bug*

Installed Kodi media center. Launched the weather channel and then shut down the program. Upon exit a remenat icon is produced on the screen and overlays all UI settings and apps. The only way to remove this icon is to reboot the device. It is easily replicated by doing the above again.

This is not a bug with Kodi or Pik TV - this is a "feature" of the app "ES File Explorer".

 

To disable the ES floating icon - go into ES File Explorer --> Settings --> Logger floating widget settings --> uncheck "enable floating widget".

 

voila!

 

Had the same frustration after installing ES file explorer as well! 🙂

@melissaj this bug was always evident playing a game app as well. To further expand on rather then just Kodi alone.

@melissaj  @Kyle_Geddes  I found it yesterday as well. Just didn't report back, an annoying feature on by default for sure..
