    On android, the system menu shows even without any options, even when built in release as active build configuration.
    Is there anyway to remove this? It's the same menu that provides re-downloading an update when built in debug configuration....

    Many thanks

    Hi Robert,

    Hiding the menu button (or overflow button per google) can be accomplished by specifying higher targetSdkVersion in the AndroidManifest.xml file. More information is available in this blog post:

    "If you set either
    minSdkVersion or targetSdkVersion to 11 or higher, the system will not add the legacy overflow button."

    I did this

    <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="11" />

    in the AndroidManifest.xml

    The menu is still there....

    I've attached the actual AndriodManifest.xml from the APK file (extracted). I'm assuming that it didn't honor my changes....(renamed to .txt so that I could upload it)

    Hi Robert,

    I used your Di****Gu***M**** project and successfully build and deploy it in Release with the aforementioned change and the "menu" button is not present. So clearly this is working, maybe you have not redeployed after making this change in the AndroidManifest.xml file?
