    Default Question on Android tablet

    SWMBO has an Android tablet and I suggested that she installs the software for the scanner/printer but she says that it does not have the room to do that. I thought that if that is the case, why does she not uninstall the programmes (she calls them apps - its the same thing, right?) that she does not use.

    Firstly, where does she go to see the programmes that she does have installed and secondly how does she uninstall the ones that she does not want? That would free up room on her hard drive.

    Another thing: does Android have Start Up the same as Windows? If so, how does she access that and how does she remove programmes from Start Up. She says that she only has a small amount of memory so removing those programmes would be of help.

    Thank you for your help.

    THis is the safe way.


    Then there is the other method:

    Thank you for that, Piroska. I did not know there was a safe way as opposed to an unsafe way. I will pass that on to SWMBO.

    Much appreciated.

    Androids dont work like Win Everything is stored in memory .
    I suspect the tablet is just cheap & nasty , & never had enough free memory to start with .


    Try a system reset .
    Start from scratch. Remove all saved photos etc .
