No need to uninstall everything. It's most likely ES Explorer where you can just disable the ES Swipe function. The settings button is right there anyway in your screenshot. To the right of the lower left X, the 2 button icon. After pressing that, just disable the function.

Looks like it might be some sort of widget. Get rid of it.

It's not adware at all. It's a feature from an app you downloaded and are using right now.
Unlike real adware, this is easy to uninstall and won't hide where you can't find it.

Is there an easier way than uninstalling most of my apps to see if adware disappears

es file explorer
logger floating widget settings
already disabled

but I got to a screen by swiping owned by
es file explorer

and disabled something.

I was doing alot of swiping and not sure what I disabled

I will check to see if screen reappears.

Right now I dont see the screen.

It's not the "logger floating widget settings" as you think, it's really called Swipe.

The check if it's disable or not, from every corner of your phone, swipe your finger to the inside of the screen (so swipe 4 seperate times. though I'm pretty sure it's the lower left corner that should trigger it). If it doesn't appear, you correctly disabled this "feature".

Disabling and checking to see if disabled.
