    You can reload all the current app that you have already installed.

    But there has been discussion that removal is not the best option but to rename them so they don't show up.


    Do your research before you proceed.

    Why do you want them gone anyway?

    No real reason I just thought they take up space? i do not use them. I figured I could get rid of them and add other things(use the space)
