I'm a newbie to the tablet world and need to know if I can delete some of the apps that came with my Tab 2 7.0 & if so, how do I get it done?

Thanks for any help, twofthrs

You cannot remove the apps that are bundled with the device without rooting the tablet. The best you can do is go into app management and disable them.

Thanks for the quick reply. So, what is rooting? Do I need to try something like that to make the tablet better?

Thanks again for any help, twofthrs

Gives you access to core functions.....

But also invalidates your warranty and sometimes stops you from updating your OS..... :sad:

'Twofthrs', did the Gemini app manager work to remove unwanted/unused apps? I want to make more space on my tablet and hate to have to remove something I want because I have to keep something I'll never use.
Thx

"Disabling" doesn't remove apps from device. It only stops them from using device resources. Suggest that you install an SD card (16GB or more), then move what you can to it to free up device memory.
