Samsung Galaxy S7

Method 1:

Open the app menu and search here an app that cannot be uninstalled. Now press once long with your finger on the app until it lifts off and can be placed on the home screen. Do not let the app go, but hover the app in the top left to "disable". If the app icon is hovering directly over “disable”, let go it, to disable the app.

Method 2:

Open the app menu and tap in the up right at "Edit." Now a small minus symbols appears next to the app icons. Now tap on any app, which cannot be uninstalled. A window appears that this app is now disabled. Confirm the operation by tapping on the button "Disable". Done!

The deactivated apps are no longer displayed on the Samsung Galaxy S7, but continue to take up space on the internal memory. You have now learned how to hide on the Samsung Galaxy S7 System apps which cannot be deleted.
