Have you got unused and unwanted apps on your Amazon Fire TV Stick? If so, it’s easy to uninstall those apps and declutter your app library. You have two different ways to do that, and we’ll show you how to use them.

Use the “Apps” Menu to Uninstall an App

Your Fire TV Stick has a menu called “Apps” that lets you quickly view and launch your installed apps. You can use this menu to remove your apps as well.

To start, on your Fire TV Stick’s remote, press and hold down the Home button. Then, in the menu that opens, choose “Apps.”

Select "Apps."

On the “Your Apps & Games” page, highlight the app you want to delete.

Highlight an app.

While your app is highlighted, on your Fire TV Stick remote, press the Menu button (the button with three horizontal lines on it).

On the right pane, in the menu that opens, choose “Uninstall.”

Select "Uninstall" in the menu.

Select “Uninstall” in the prompt.

Choose "Uninstall" in the prompt.

And that’s it. Your chosen app is now removed from your Fire TV Stick.

With space cleared up on your device, you may want to get some new apps. Did you know you can sideload apps not available in the AppStore after jailbreaking your Fire TV?

In settings, select “Applications” to access your installed apps.

Choose "Applications."

On the app page, choose “Uninstall.”

Select "Uninstall" in the menu.

Choose "Uninstall" in the prompt.

And your selected app is now uninstalled on your Fire TV Stick. Enjoy a decluttered user interface!
