How to delete apps on Firestick or Fire TV explained

The Amazon Fire TV Stick — better known by some as just the Fire Stick — is a streaming device sold by Amazon. Similar in many ways to the Roku, the Fire Stick is shaped like a USB flash drive and plugs directly into your TV’s HDMI port.

With a mind-blowing 15,000-plus app available for use with Amazon’s Fire TV, it’s only inevitable that users will eventually come across a few that seemed like a good addition to their device at the time but turned out to be disappointing in the end. It will be more convenient for users to get rid of those apps rather than leaving them to take up memory-space on a Fire TV device, in order to be able to replace those unnecessary apps with something more useful and satisfying for the user.

By deleting or uninstalling Firestick Apps you can free up more space on your device for easier use. This will let you add apps or download content that previously might not have been possible. When deleting apps, you will find that not all of them are able to be removed. Amazon pre-installs certain app that users cannot get rid of. Many of these are tools or other devices that allow your Firestick or Fire TV to operate smoothly. Many Amazon Firestick/Fire TV users “jailbreak” the device to sideload 3rd party apps, and deleting unused apps over time will help the device run smoothly.

How to permanently delete apps from Fire TV 

In doesn’t depend on whether the app is an officially authorized and published program through the Fire TV store or third-party software installed manually, deleting and removing process is quite simple in both cases. This process begins on the Fire TV menu screen, which you can quickly access by selecting the Menu button on your Fire TV remote.

  1. The first thing you will need to do is to turn on the TV and then you should go straight into the Fire TV menu which you will find by pressing the “menu” button on the remote. 
  2. After that, you will see the “settings” option (the one that is in the shape of a cog/gear). 
  3. Then, you should click on the settings option.
  4. From this menu, all you need is the “apps” tab to be found.
  5. Next up, you will need to find and open the “manage installed apps” option from the menu.

Reinstalling an app that has only been uninstalled should reactivate the saved data, but any program that has been deleted will have to be signed back into again. Repeat these steps as often as necessary to clear any remaining unwanted apps from your Fire TV device.

After the process has been done, a list of all the Apps that are on your Fire TV that can be removed will be displayed. Here, you should think carefully Take and figure out exactly what you want to get rid of and what you want to be kept.

After you make your decision about what you want to get rid of, you should select them all and then click on the “uninstall” tab to delete them. From here, the system itself will take over and guide you through the whole process in a way that is incredibly clear. In fact, it’s so clear that we wouldn’t dare even try to compete with it!

All in all, that’s it! The information above is all that you need to do. Unfortunately, there are some Apps that you just can’t get rid of due to the fact that they’re vital to the operation of the TV itself. I hope that the steps above have helped you to understand how simple the process of deleting is and the results are as you have expected.
