    Hello.

    My IPad 1 has developed a transparent icon which floats on the screen and gives the following options when pressed:- home, gestures, favourites, and device. It is easy to hit by mistake and gets in the way when using the IPad. Do you know of a way of removing it? I can't find anything relating to it in settings.

    Thank you for any help you may be able to give.

    It's "Assistive Touch", it's in settings -> general -> accessibility
