How to remove Google Files app imported from Samsung Switch

(Topic created on: 01-31-2021 05:11 PM)
Beginner Level 2

I recently migrated from stock Android on a Google Pixel to the Samsung S21 Ultra and I migrated my accounts and settings with Samsung Switch.  I thought everything worked great until I ran into a pretty big issue.  It seems the app migrated the regular Google Files app (which I am guessing Samsung My Files is meant to replace) and some of my applications see the Google Files app as the default launch app, and it crashes every time it tries to use it because it does not exist in the code.  I looked in the App settings and there is an entry for the Files application but it does not give me the ability to disable or uninstall (in fact it is the only application I have found that has no options at all, even to force it to stop).  So I am stuck with the scaffolding of an application that does not exist that other applications try to use.  Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?  Thanks!
