FIX: Zebra Barcode Scanners not scanning when Kiosk Browser/Launcher is running

Zebra changed the DataWedge behaviour in Android 11, this also applies to future versions of Android.

By default the Data Wedge Application automatically inserts all home apps into the profile "Launcher", this stops the barcode scanner from functioning when Kiosk Browser/Launcher is running. Disabling the profile is not enough to restore functionality.

Open DataWedge application
Long press the profile Launcher
Tap delete/remove
