    I've been getting rid of bloatware from my Samsung Galaxy phones using ADB and it works fine.

    e.g.,
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.email

    However, is there any command to "disable" the app, instead of "uninstalling" it, so that I can re-enable it later if I change my mind?

    Also, I apologize in advance for not being able to find the appropriate thread category to post this. Thanks.

    The app manager built into the phone should be able to do this, it's been possible for a while now.

    Sorry, I was referring to the apps with a greyed out 'Disable' option.

    e.g., Email, Music, Video, Gallery, etc.

    Thank you for your response though.

    Oh, so basically I just simply type "disable" instead of "uninstall", right?

    Thank you for your response.
