Can I delete pre installed apps from the Firestick?

You should be able to uninstall the apps that came pre-installed on your Firestick in the vast majority of instances. This is an excellent method for getting rid of some of the “bloatware” or useless applications that are preinstalled on the device by the manufacturer but that you might not be interested in using.

Users of the Firestick can erase programmes from the device by following the step-by-step guide that can be found above by navigating to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > selecting the application > and finally hitting Uninstall to remove the application. If there is no option to uninstall the programme from the device, then you will not be able to delete it from the device.
