How to uninstall or disable pre-installed Samsung app from your smartphone

Sadly, most of the unwanted, pre-installed apps that most of us have had to deal with on our phones can be removed. Whether they are duplicate Samsung apps or carrier bloatware, most unwanted apps may be eliminated by deactivating or removing them.

Disabling an app does not remove it from the device; it just makes it invisible on the app’s screen. Disabled apps won’t run in the background and won’t receive any new updates.

For instance, the Samsung Gallery app is necessary for the device to function. You cannot disable or delete these apps. You can best hide these programs in a folder so they are out of the way. Here is a place to start.

Ways to delete Samsung apps from the home screen

Only commonly used apps should reside on your smartphone’s home screen, which is the most valuable real estate. Use the instructions below to remove any unwanted apps from your Samsung smartphone’s home screen.
– Find the app you wish to remove.
– To access the contextual menu, long-press on the app icon.
– Select Uninstall, then press OK to confirm.
– Tap the I button if you don’t see the Uninstall option.
– To disable the app, select the Disable option and then hit Disable app.

–  If the system app is required for the device to operate, the Disable option will be disabled.
Before clicking OK, carefully read the pop-up message because removing some apps might have an effect on how the phone operates as a whole.

How to get rid of applications from the Samsung apps screen

The long-press gesture for app deletion is also supported in the app drawer. If an app is installed on your phone but isn’t visible on the home screen, you can find it via the apps screen or app drawer.

– Swipe up from the home screen to get to the app screen.
– Long-press on an app’s icon to remove or delete it.
– Clicking that button will remove the application.
– If you can’t uninstall the program, click the I button.
– Select the Disable option and touch Disable app to confirm.

How to remove Samsung applications through the settings menu

You can delete or disable apps using the settings app on your Samsung phone.

– On your Samsung phone, launch the Settings app.
– Select Apps.
– Simply tap on an app to delete it.
– Tap Uninstall, then tap OK to remove the program from your phone.
– If the app cannot be deleted, a Disable option will be displayed. Use it to deactivate the app.

It’s easy to disable or remove Samsung apps from your phone. Yes, some apps are inaccessible for deletion, but that’s acceptable since they are necessary for the device to function. These programs can always be changed and concealed in a folder.
