Changing application settings

In most cases, you can change the settings for an app only when you're inside that app. For some apps, you can change their settings without having to open the apps.

  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Flick left to go to applications.
  4. Tap an app or category to see what settings are available and choose the settings that you want.

Uninstalling an app

If you're running out of phone storage, free up some space by removing apps you no longer use.

Uninstalling an app also removes any information the app contained. Please remove apps with care.

Important: Most preinstalled apps cannot be uninstalled.
  1. On the Start screen, slide to the left.
  2. Press and hold an app, and then tap uninstall.
Note: Games can only be uninstalled from the collection list in the Games hub.
