    Thank you for this tip

    When I follow your instructions I can not see a pencil icon on the right

    Instead I see the messenger app symbol

    When I click on this it takes me to Messenger

    How else can I access the pencil icon to remove people?

    There is no pencil next to their name, only the messenger symbol.
