Last Update date : Oct 05. 2020

Uninstall and Disable Applications

You can use the Task manager application to uninstall Android applications and widgets you have downloaded on your device. To open the Task manager application quickly, touch Recent and then touch Task manager.

Touch the Downloaded tab, touch the Uninstall button next to the application’s name and touch Uninstall.

You can also uninstall the application from the Apps menu. Touch Apps > Downloaded apps. Touch More options > Uninstall. Touch next to the application and then touch OK to confirm the uninstallation.

Uninstall using the Application Manager

From the Home screen touch Apps > Settings > General > Application manager. If necessary, swipe to the DOWNLOADED tab. Touch the application in the list. Touch Uninstall > Uninstall. Applications preloaded on your device cannot be uninstalled but you can uninstall any updates you have applied by touching Uninstall updates > OK.

Turn Off Apps

You can turn off or disable certain preloaded (or system) applications on your device. Once turned off the application will be hidden and will no longer be accessible until it is turned on.

From the Home screen touch Apps > More options > Uninstall/disable apps. Touch next to the application you would like to turn off. A message may warn you about turning off built-in applications: touch OK to proceed. Before the application can be turned off any updates will be uninstalled and replaced with the factory default version. Touch Uninstall to proceed.

Note: If updates are uninstalled, once you turn the application back on you will then need to apply any updates via Google Play Store.

Turn On Apps

You can turn on disabled applications from the Apps menu. Touch Apps > More options > Show disabled apps. Mark the application you want to turn on and then touch Done.

The Application manager also lets you turn on disabled apps. Touch Apps > Settings > General > Application manager. Swipe to the TURNED OFF tab at the top of the screen. Touch the app you wish to turn on and then touch Turn on.
