Troubleshoot: Android One Note Badge Stuck 'Opening...'
Problem: I’m using the Microsoft One Note Badge on my Android Galaxy Tab A. The badge floats along the screen til I press it then it opens up One Note for me. I just opened the badge and told it to open One Note, but now it’s stuck with the message ‘Opening…’ It’s obviously stuck, but now I can’t touch any of the other buttons on the screen like Power Off or Restart because the badge has focus. How can I close the One Note Badge when it gets stuck like this?
Solution: The solution to this issue is pretty simple, albeit a bit obscure. Before you go ahead removing your battery or smashing your tablet, try this:
Hit your Android’s back button.
This should signal to the One Note badge that you want it to end whatever operation it’s currently performing – in this case opening a page. Plus, it does this without having to touch the screen which we already know is blocked.
Hope this saves a few tablet lives.
