Through the settings

  1. Open settings.
  2. Go to the section «Apps» (might be called differently).
  3. Choose the program.
  4. Push the button «Delete» or «Uninstall».

Further, you only need to confirm uninstallation, and the application will not bother you anymore. Moreover, if this method will not lead you to the desired result, use one of the additional ways, described lower.

Via Play Store

If the app is installed through the Play Store or you installed the program that is in store, through APK-file, you can delete unnecessary apps on Sony Xperia L2 right through Google Play. For this, you need to:

  1. Launch Play Store.
  2. Open the list of installed programs or find the app yourself, using the search bar.
  3. On the program’s page, press the button «Delete» or «Uninstall».

You can also use any other program, performing the function of apps uninstallation. In all cases, deleting process will be similar.

Standard apps deleting

Unlike third party programs, it is much more difficult to delete system apps on Sony Xperia L2. This is due to the fact, that software is developed by creators of the smartphone and its uninstallation might lead to the serious crashes in device operation. If this fact does not stop you, choose one of the two options for further actions.

Disabling

By default, built-in apps cannot be removed. You can only turn them off:

  1. Go to the settings.
  2. Open apps section.
  3. Choose the program.
  4. Press the button «Force stop».

The essence of this operation is that the user blocks the operation of the standard program. Consequently, it stops to consume the resources of the phone, but at the same time remains in its memory.

Full deleting

The way, letting to delete standard programs forever. The truth is that in this case the owner of Sony Xperia L2 will have to do some note the simplest steps:

  4. Unpack the ADB archive to the root folder of the disk.
  5. Launch the command line with administrator rights.
  6. Process the requests «cd c: /adb», «adb devices», «adb shell» by pressing the «Enter» button after entering each of them.
  7. Open the App Inspector on your smartphone.
  8. Tap on the program’s name.
  9. Copy or remember the information from the «Package Name» point.
  10. In the command line of the computer enter request «pm uninstall -k --user 0 *Package Name*», where put the previously considered information instead of «Package Name».
  11. Press «Enter».
