Note: Please be sure with what kind of Application you are going to Dis-able as disabling a wrong app(Factory app like keyboard will not display keyboard) could cause your phone to miss-function(not able to Enable the mobile data etc.)So please proceed with caution
As you see that Google has some pre-installed apps which are loaded on the phone at the time of purchase like Google maps, Google Play music, Google Drive, Google Chrome etc.(let's say Google Play Music is the most unwanted app you want to disable).
You can do it very easily just follow these steps carefully.
Step 1:Go to settings>Application Manager.
Step 2:You will have three side scroll options under the Application Manager.
It will list the apps which you have downloaded from the play store or any third party apps.
- Running:It will list the apps which are presently running on your phone in the background.
-All:This will list all the apps i.e.the installed apps from the play store , running apps on your device, Stock apps from Google.
Step 3:Choose the All option by scrolling to the extreme right/left.
Step 4:Choose the app which you want to disable.(Say Google Play Music.)
Step 5:After selecting the desired app you will have some options like
- Force Stop.
- Clear App Data.
Step 6:Choose clear App Data to remove any data stored by the application.
Step 7:Choose Force Stop to stop the application from running.
Step 8:Choose the Disable option to disable it from running again (it will be in your phone but will not be displayed under the Menu).
Step 9:After selecting the Disable option your App which you have disabled should appear in the bottom of the All screen. (Say you disabled Play Music then Play Music will appear in the bottom of you All list apps along with a Disabled displayed to the right).Also in the play store under All Apps the application will be displayed at the last with the same disabled next to it.
After doing all the above 9 steps correctly and in order your disabled application will not be enabled automatically and will not show any updates to you as it has been disabled Permanently.Also if you choose auto update application even then your application will not be updated.
