US­ING AP­PLI­CA­TION MAN­AGER

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

The eas­i­est way to unin­stall un­wanted apps is through the Ap­pli­ca­tion Man­ager, which is found un­der Set­tings > De­vice > Ap­pli­ca­tions. From there, find the All tab to see what's in­stalled on your de­vice. To pre­vent users from trash­ing items that are crit­i­cal to the sys­tem's well­be­ing, most can't be re­moved. But some apps can be unin­stalled, such as Sam­sung Gal­axy Life. For such apps, you will see an Unin­stall but­ton when you tap on them.

There will also be apps that are non-sys­tem crit­i­cal, but which you can't re­move, such as some of the Google and Mi­crosoft apps, util­i­ties, and so­cial media apps. For these apps, in­stead of Unin­stall, you'll see a Dis­able but­ton. This sim­ply hides them from your app drawer and pre­vents them from run­ning, so it doesn't help if you're try­ing to re­claim some stor­age space. To re­verse the process, just go to the Dis­abled tab to tog­gle the switch again.

The Ap­pli­ca­tion Man­ager is fairly re­stric­tive, but you can still find some apps to dis­able.
