Instead of cluttering up the default "All Apps" view with GREYED OUT apps (as they are uninstalled), I suggest that upon uninstalling an app, it get REMOVED from the list of "All Apps" at the top, and INSTEAD placed into its own dedicated section in the SIDE BAR called "Purchase History" or something of the sort, where there is PLENTY of SPACE, and where uninstalled apps will NOT interfere with my default VIEW of "All Apps"...

Meta is ignorant to this issue, been a couple years and they cannot make this basic functionality.  Sad.

Totally. This is SOOOOO BASIC. Like any junior developer could fix this in a day and they still haven't fix it in YEARS. I cannot understand how meta developers are so bad for UI.

I would like them to go a step further and allow us to manage our own apps into folders which could be added to the new left side of the App Drawer.

We should also most certainly be allowed to remove unwanted apps from the App Drawer also. It’s a complete mess and has been for years!

Totally agree.

Not being able to remove demos or not having the uninstalled apps stored in a particular place is so annoying.
It's a so easy to do and common thing, we should not even have to ask for that.

Meta, please do something for that!

For some unknown reason, Meta has ignored any idea related to app management. This idea has been actively requested for over 3 years: https://communityforums.atmeta.com/t5/Ideas/Add-a-way-to-delete-games-from-the-library-not-just-unin...

All they do is merge newer requests into the same thread. As a way to hide it or, ironically, to unclutter the idea forum. 

Meanwhile, I still have demos of games I bought years ago cluttering my app library.

After nearly 62 updates, to the headsets, I am unsure why we cannot permanently delete game icons that we no longer want to appear under the games installed/not installed library tabs. For eg. Demo games that we no longer want.. or beta games that got full releases on the Quest store...So after the deletion of the beta/demo games, we still have the game icon show up in Our library even after we delete it. This adds unnecessary icon clutter to our library. I am sure it would be a simple undertaking for devs to accomplish as its a long-overdue request from players

For now I sort my library to only see what is installed for not see the other application.

There should also be folders for your games/library

This is one of a few bugbears I have with the Quest.  If I uninstall a game I don't want it to still show.  Very poorly managed indeed.

It would be cool if they did it like apple,where as if you go to your marketplace you can see all apps previously and currently owned,so stupid
