Question

Yes, it is quite simple.

- Go to future menu by pressing the last card from the main menu;

- Find your app;

- If you are using magic remote put the cursor over your app and an arrow will appear above the app;

- Click on the arrow. The app will pop out from the line. From this point you can rearrange the apps or you can delete the apps by clicking the X from the top of the icon.

And what if I don't have the magic remote?!!!

 

I can't for the life of me work out how to delete an app IF I don't have the magic remote.

 

Even LGs own 'Smart Tv' page only references how to delete Apps using the Magic Remote. It is ridiculous.

 

Anyone know?

When you are scrolling the applications (ie after you click the "My Apps" button) click on the UP ARROW over the selected application and it will show you an X, then you are asked if you'd like to delete the application.

No it isn't simple guys. 

These icons are just shortcuts to installed applications.

Removing them does not uninstall applications from TV.

To remove installed applications, you must reset TV to factory settings - very stupid, but true.

I came here mainly to ask this very same thing and this:

 

When you are scrolling the applications (ie after you click the "My Apps" button) click on the UP ARROW over the selected application and it will show you an X, then you are asked if you'd like to delete the application.

Worked for me. In yer face, Wuaki! Now to find where to post the next question.. :)

 

Thanks, E0Zyo and Flaviu, for the correct answer.  :thumbsup:

I do not have Magic Remote.

 

Go to MY APPS

Look for the pencil icon on the top right

Select the pencil icon – text EDIT will appear

Small window Drag here to delete will appear

Select app to move or delete, or drag it to the desired location.

Magic remote (or equivalent Android app) not needed, the regular remote works with the up arrow and the x, but I'm sat looking at the "My Apps" home screen just now and am not seeing any pencil icon, the icon at the top right on that page is the one which is clicked on to go to full screen in a game or browser window.

For anyone still looking at this thread...in the 2016 WebOS 3.0 version without a Magic Remote....choose the app you want to delete and hold down the OK button on the regular remote, it will "pop up" the app and give you the X, you can then arrow up to choose the X and it will ask you if you want to uninstall the app.

For anyone still looking, the above individuals in general have no idea that LG makes more than one remote and interface.  

1.) If you have a magic remote then go to the tab that has the app and hover over it and you will get the options described above and delete.

2.) No magic remote came with your tv.  Then there are at least 3 interfaces with the TV BUT a universal way to delete the app IS to find the PENCIL.

However, it is not always as indicated.  Normally it can be located as people said, within the app area 'way up high to the right' 

unfortunately LG has now also changed this and some TV's have the pencil down on the APP list, and located all the way to the right (lower side).

When you scroll over to it click it and it should instruct you how to delete.  Generally got back to the app tab and up arrow.

 

3.)  Some TV's respect the hold the OK button when you have selected the app, but it varies if it gives you the delete option.  Most start with the move the icon option.  If you use the 'Hold the OK Button Press' on the app tab and you get the move the icon option first, then you need push the down arrow to get into the normal edit mode and then up arrow to choose delete.

 

LG has NOT been consistent with this interface.  In addtion, apps are listed as free and are NOT and hence you must come here to find out how to delete as 

LG has NOT put how to delete or uninstall in the help files.  NOR can you search for DELETE or UNINSTALL in the help files or guides. 

 

Good luck. 

PS I have not checked the memory usage on LG tvs that have the magic remote to see if SIMON is right but I suspect she is.  However, on my TV 50uh5530 when I delete the app tab using the pencil, it does free up the Internal Memory.

 

Once again, LG inconsistency!

    • Question: NEW TV STORE HELP

      Hello friends.  I brought a LG 43 inch 4k smart TV for my room. I'm so satisfied with the TV.   Unfortunately I gotta go out side of the country more than one year for my duty.  So is it okay to store my TV without turning on more than one year?  Will it be a big issue for the  TV components?  😎

    • Question: LG Content Store

      Hi all I hope someone can help me. I recently purchased an LG 55" TV and noticed there is a My Content Menu. When I try and add shows it's only finding them from Prime or YouTube, it doesn't show up searches from NowTv or Netflix. Is the store only able to find titles in Prime or should I be able to search NowTv and Netflix etc via the content store and My content tab?    Hope I haven't confused anyone and hope this makes sense? 🙂   Many Thanks in advance

    • Network connection issues. LG Content store doesn't connect.

      I did a refresh of my LG TV 3 days ago. Sold the old LG 47" 3D LED TV and bought new 55" LG Super UltraHD TV with WebOS. I believe, the biggest con of this new TV is WebOS. Its totally frustrating. Sorry for WebOS fans. It isn't that smart and functional they way it looks. The problem I having since 3 days and being a network engineer, I am unable to solve a network issue myself which is even more frustrating for me. Ok, let me explain the issue. The TV when installed was connected to LAN cable to my router which has direct internet connection. The TV works and none of the apps were working. Basically TV wasn't able to connect to internet via apps. If i open web browser, it was working fine with all webpages showing correctly. I'll skip the part of contacting LG support which was useless. All troubleshooting steps like resetting, formatting, changing time zone, location, region was done but no luck. Finally I connected the TV via mobile hotspot and it just worked which gave me the clue that some ports are being blocked by my ISP or router. My internet setup is this way. Internet cable from ISP -> ISP Modem (can do NAT and work as router) - WiFi Router (NAT, DHCP, etc) -> all LAN clients. I put my LG TV in DMZ, opened all ports, etc but no luck. Then I converted my ISP modem as router and connected the LG TV directly to it and it started working..!!! My WiFi Router is TP-Link Archer C7 and I was using stock firmware. Thought it was creating issues and I installed DD-WRT, Open-WRT but no luck at all. The apps which were installed in TV when TV was connected directly to modem are still working fine. Youtube, Plex, Netflix, etc all are working but when I open LG Content Store, it just refuses to load. I am not sure what wrong my TP-Link router is doing. There is something wrong with the LG TV content store. If it requires to open ports, then I would like to know which ones. Sorry for the long port, may be my frustration of 3 days with no luck.!!
