Shortcuts for easy actions

You can access shortcuts directly from your app icons to uninstall downloaded apps or reveal more quick options. For example, long press the Calendar icon to create a new event or set a reminder. All apps have a shortcut to App info, where you can adjust notification settings and permissions. You can go to App info by tapping App info icon.

To use shortcuts for easy actions

  1. Long press the desired app icon on your Home or Application screen.
  2. Select from the options that appear. For example, tap App info icon to go to App info, or tap Uninstall app icon to disable or uninstall the application.

If an Uninstall app icon icon is not shown, tap App info icon for more options.

To disable or uninstall an application from the Application screen

Whether an app can be uninstalled or disabled depends on the app, and if it was pre-installed on your device or downloaded. Downloaded apps can be uninstalled. Pre-installed apps cannot be uninstalled, only disabled if the app supports this. If you disable a pre-installed app, you can enable it again under Settings > Apps & notifications > App info .

  1. Touch and hold the application you want to disable or uninstall. If it can be disabled or uninstalled an Uninstall app icon appears.
  2. Tap Uninstall app icon > Disable > OK if the app came pre-installed on your device or tap Uninstall > OK if the app was downloaded and you would like to uninstall it.

If an Uninstall app icon icon is not shown, tap App info icon for more options.
