Galaxy A5 - Disable or Uninstall Applications (SM-A500W)
To make the most of your device's internal storage capacity, you can uninstall or turn off applications you don't use. Downloaded applications can be uninstalled, and preloaded applications can be turned off.
Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Disable Preloaded Applications
If an application or updates are uninstalled, you will need to download the application or apply any updates again via Google Play store, Galaxy Apps, or the Amazon Appstore once you turn on the application.
From the Apps menu, you can turn off preloaded applications. Once turned off, the application will be hidden and will not be accessible until it is turned on.
To turn off an application in a folder, touch the folder and choose Open folder. You can then turn off the application. You can also choose Remove folder to delete the folder. Any application in the folder you delete will return to the Apps menu.
Turn On Applications You Have Disabled
Uninstall Downloaded Applications
Preloaded applications (applications built into your device) cannot be uninstalled. You can only disable them.
From the Application manager, you can uninstall any applications and updates you have downloaded.
