Removal of displayed icon...


I have this icon, "circle with a and arrow through it and a 1 beside it".

I have been unable to work out what it is or how to get rid of it and would appreciate some help.

Re: Removal of displayed icon...

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


That sounds like a notification from AppWorld...but, check this to be sure:





If it matches the above display, then launch AppWorld and, if it needs an update, do it. If it does not, then go into MyWorld and check all of your installed apps to find the one that needs updating.


Good luck!
