How to Delete(Uninstall) Apps on Android: If your Android device (phone or tablet) is starting to fill up with too many apps, it’s a good time to review what you have installed and pare it down a little. Here’s how you uninstall those downloaded apps.
This method works for all versions of Android. The first thing you should do is open the Settings menu on your device. After that, open Apps or Application manager (depending on your device), find the app you want to delete and select it, and then just tap on the Uninstall button.
The app will be deleted from your device in a matter of seconds in most cases. Once completed, you’ll be directed back to the Apps menu, where you can repeat the process to delete more apps if you want or have to.
How to Delete(Uninstall) Apps on Android:
Step by step instructions:
Method-1: Direct access to settings
- Open Settings on your device.
- Tap on Apps or Application manager.
- Tap on the app you want to remove. You may need to scroll to find the right one.
- Tap Uninstall.
Method-2: Delete in the App Drawer
This is probably the fastest and easiest way to delete apps on your smartphone or tablet, although it doesn’t work on devices running older versions of Android. If the method described below doesn’t work for you, just stick to either one of the two options listed above.
Here’s how it works. Just open up the app drawer where all of your apps are located, tap and hold on the one you want to get rid of, and drag it to the Uninstall section that you’ll see on the screen. The final step is just to tap on OK when the window asking you if you want to uninstall the app pops up.
This process also works for apps that are on your home screen, and not just those that are in the app drawer.
