You can remove installed apps that you no longer want to keep or use, to increase the amount of available memory.

  1. On the start screen, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and tap Customize.
  2. Tap the app.
  3. Tap trash icon .

If you remove an app, you may be able to reinstall without buying again, as long as the app is available in Store.

If an installed app depends on a removed app, the installed app may stop working. For details, see the user documentation of the installed app.

Not all apps can be removed.
