Default Removing apps from tablet

Hi All,

I am new here and haven't found an answer to this question, unless I am looking in the wrong place. I have apps on my tablet that were free, but I really don't want them now and would like to delete them so maybe to add something else. Does anyone know of a way to delete them. I have looked every ware on the tablet and can't find anything. Please let me know if you know how to do this. Thanks

Hello and welcome aboard.

There are two ways to delete an app, whether using the Settings Menu or from the app tray

in Setting menu:

Touch Settings - Applications - Manage Applications.Then Select the app and touch "Uninstall".

Remove apps From the Application Tray

Touch "Apps" and choose the app you want to uninstall. Then Touch & Hold the application icon, and then you will see "Uninstall" coming up in the top right corner of the display. Now drag & drop it to the Uninstall trash can.

You must be rooted to remove or freeze built in apps.
