Installing ADB on Windows

Go to You do not have permission to view the full content of this post. Log in or register now. and download the Android SDK Platform-Tools for Windows
Extract the ZIP file after it’s downloaded to somewhere easy for you to navigate to later, such as directly in your C:\ drive
Shift + right-click the platform-tools folder and select “Open PowerShell window here”

Enable Developer Options on your phone

On your phone, launch Settings
Go to About phone and scroll down until you see “Build number”
Tap on it a few times and you should see the popup that says “You are now X steps way from being a developer.”
Keep tapping until it says “You are now a developer”

Uninstalling system apps

Connect your phone to your computer via the USB cable
When prompted, select “File transfer” mode
With the PowerShell open from earlier, type adb devices and hit enter
You should now see your device listed
Now type adb shell and hit enter
Type pm list packages | grep ‘<packagename>’, but replace <packagename> with the name of the app you want to uninstall
For example, typing pm list packages | grep ‘google’ will show you a list of apps from Google, or pm list packages | grep ‘samsung’ will show you a list of apps installed on your phone by Samsung
Look for the name of the package you want to uninstall. This should be after the “package:”, so for example in “package:com.google.android.contacts”, the name of the package would be “com.google.android.contacts
If the list is too long, you can try and search the Play Store for the package name which will be part of the URL, which we have highlighted in bold “You do not have permission to view the full content of this post. Log in or register now.com.google.android.contacts
Type pm uninstall -k –user 0 package-name
You should now see a “Success” message when the app has been uninstalled.
