Ability to remove titles from library
I’ve somehow ended up with both the Beat Saber demo and full version. I’d quite like to remove the demo from my library, but I can’t!
As noted below, if you hover over an app’s tile in your library and click the three dots in the bottom right corner, you can select uninstall. This will move the item from the Apps section of your library to the Not Installed section. The Not Installed area hosts all the apps that you have purchased or downloaded previously, but are no longer downloaded and installed on your device. Utilizing this uninstall feature should allow you to remove the Beat Saber demo from the Apps section and only have the full version of Beat Saber listed there. Hope this helps!
Moving the app to "Not Installed" is not the desired behavior being requested from this suggestion. Now with App Lab (and "All" being the forced default filter) it's more important than ever to have the ability to remove the clutter from your app list.

I agree with everyone else. We need to be able to completely remove these old apps from sight.

This issue is not completed. Uninstalling is not what we're asking for. My nephew keeps installing demos for games I have the full version of. Somehow he sees the demos before he sees the full one. I want to remove those titles from my library. I don't want to see them in "All apps" and i don't want to see them in "not installed"
I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of the oculus quest because of all the clutter, please please get rid of the UNNISTALLED APPS.
GET RID OF UNNISTALLED APPS,
I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of my quest because I can't get rid of uninstalled apps, they drive me to distraction, Oculus wake up and smell the coffee, we want to be able to get rid of all this clutter.

Like EV E R Y B O D Y else and I mean not a single person agrees with this stupid "you can hide then, but the setting will not remain" nonsense of yours. We want to D E L E T E apps like demons, which are, by their respective nature M E A N T to be D E LE T E D, after trying them and N O O N E wants them to remain on the device, please change this weird and rediculous nonsense!!
Would be better if we had a library folder with all purchased apps, and the apps tab just had the installed apps in it!

+1 on why can't we remove items from the library completely? I get that it can be useful to leave some uninstalled items in the library by default as I could fill the device's storage up, need to remove an app yes still want a reminder of the app hanging around should I want to come back to it at a later date but I've had my Quest 2 for just 48 hours and the library is already full of junk that I downloaded to have a look at just to see what my new toy was capable of and have no real interest in ever using again. Having these items that I don't ever want to revisit hanging around is quickly going to render my library unusable.
Please!! Just let us remove the **** uninstalled apps!
You can improve the PPP latform by listening to your customers. Add the ability to completely remove titles from our library. How many times do you need to hear that? Do it or continue looking like slow to reacted morons. This has been requested for over 2 years! Fauk!
HELLOOOOOOO OCULUS CAN YOU HEAR US???
Apparently not. Let us remove the clutter. And NOT have to resort the Library every time. All I want to see are the apps I'm wanting to keep. EVER. That free thing you let us download? And we checked it out, it was kinda cool, huh, thanks. Well, I want it out of my sight forever. Why not give us that ability???
The more I learn about Oculus the more I yearn for (and will pay for) something better, from someone else. When the competition comes, Oculus will learn how their nincompoopery affects the relationship with their customers. Yeah .. they will have far fewer.
Get real, Oculus. Listen to the people.
I think it's you guys that aren't understanding. Everyone here knows how to uninstall an app. That's not the problem. The issue is that after you uninstall an app, an icon for it still shows up in your apps in case you want to reinstall it. You can filter out uninstalled apps but we just want a way to get rid of it completely. There's nothing more frustrating than a condescending reply from someone that doesn't even understand the question.

I’ve tried uninstalling a few things, and when I go back to my Quest, they are still actively there.
I like trying new demos and what not. When I uninstall them, the expectation is they are removed. Why do they remain in the library asking me to install again?
I mistakenly clicked on something that said "free", I just wanted to see what it was, and it immediately downloaded as a free purchase! I do not want this app in my library! How can I get it out??? I've tried everything!!! Please help!

"Uninstalled" is not a real solution if my news feed is still filled with garbage (news) about that app I dislike and do not want to hear about anymore. The first three items in my news feed today are about apps that I "uninstalled" and yet I'm still forced to read their stupid updates. Please fix, because this isn't really "completed", Jimmy. Thanks.
This is a terrible solution.
Not only do I not want the app I installed (Because it was terrible) but I don't want the quest to remind me to install it again every time I turn it on.
This needs to be addressed as a matter of principle, we already bought your product, stop ramming more BUY NOW BUY NOW BUY NOW down our throats.
This is still an ongoing request that needs to be addressed. I would like to be able to delete or even "hide this title" so that I never have to see them again.
Please address this issue as this is starting to be annoying for navigating my menus.

This is not a real solution.
I would like to get rid of some free apps that I added to my library as well. Even from the "Not installed" section. Why is it so hard to implement this feature?
