All Android devices come pre-installed with quite a few different apps. These can include several useful ones that most people dont mind, such as Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, etc. However, theres also a good chance your device will come preloaded with apps you dont intend on using. In most cases, these apps cant be uninstalled from your device quite as easily as the ones you have downloaded yourself. So if you use any of the three options listed above, you wont see an Uninstall button at the very end of the process, as you can see in the image below.

The apps that cant be deleted are called system apps, and the only way to get rid of them is to root your device. If youre unfamiliar with the term, rooting simply refers to obtaining access to commands, system files, and folder locations that are usually locked off for the user.

The alternative is to hide the system apps you dont want to use in the app drawer if your device allows it. This wont delete the apps, but at least they wont clutter your app drawer.

Another solution is to disable pre-installed apps. This wont delete them, but it will stop them from working in the background and hide them from your app drawer. You can do this by going to the Settings app. Go into Apps, find the pre-installed app, select it, and then hit Disable. Confirm the action by tapping Disable app.

Step by step instructions:

  1. OpenSettings on your device.
  2. Tap on Apps.
  3. Find the app you want to disable and select it.
  4. Tap Disable.
  5. Hit Disable app.

Many users are worried that if they delete apps they have purchased from the Play Store, they will have to rebuy them to use them later. This, of course, will never happen. You can delete an app you have bought and then download it for free as many times as you want.

If you delete an app youve bought, it will be tagged as Purchased when searching for it on the Play Store. If you want to use it again, open it, tap on the download button, and youre good to go. No payment is needed.

If it allows you to get rid of them, it means they arent system apps.Comments
