How do I turn off or uninstall applications on my Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport?

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.

Preloaded applications (applications built into your device) cannot be uninstalled. You can only turn them off.

Turn Off 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.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  2. Touch More options > Uninstall/disable apps.

  3. Touch Turn off on the application you want to turn off.

  4. A message may warn you about turning off the application. Touch TURN OFF to proceed.

    Before the application can be turned off, any updates will be uninstalled and replaced with the factory default version. If any updates were installed, touch OK to finish turning off the application.

Turn On Applications You Have Turned Off

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  2. Touch Settings.

  3. Scroll to and touch Application manager.

  4. Touch All apps > Turned off.

  5. Touch the application you want to turn on.

  6. Touch ENABLE.

Uninstall Downloaded Applications

From the Application manager, you can uninstall any applications and updates you have downloaded.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  2. Touch More options > Downloaded apps.

  3. Touch More options > Uninstall.

  4. Touch Uninstall on the application you want to uninstall, and then touch OK.
