    Icons not disappearing even after deleting them on Android Samsung Galaxy

    Even deleting two applications on my Android Samsung Galaxy, the icons are not disappearing from the screen. I had rooted the phone with FitGingerRoot and was wondering whether this was the issue with it. How can make the icons disappear?

    The first thing to do would be to restart your phone. While doing this remove its battery also and replace it after some time and try restarting it. If it is some minor fault with your settings this would make it right. You could try resetting your phone after having a proper data backup. This measure is to be taken only in the case nothing else works out. Since your phone is rooted experimentation should be minimized so as to protect your phone from getting bricked. You could also check your apps folder or the system apps folder for files of formats such as apk which looks has similar names as the applications. If you find those delete them. This would solve the issue.

    Following are the solution:
    First:

    =) Launch the settings and select the "manage application" in it.

    =) After that go to the "option" in it and tap the "clear cache" and "clear data" option.

    =) This will clear all the cache of all apps OK.

    This is because when we remove the apps there is some file which are still store like cache.
    By doing this you need to restart the Samsung galaxy and then see your icons is disappeared.

    Second:

    =) Reset the Samsung galaxy device.
