    I have Nexus 5 with Android 6.0. I would like to disable any app without rooting.
    Of course not play store and system apps. Thanks

    Welcome to the forums. Go into Settings>apps. You should be able to pick which apps you want to disable and click on them. You will have to disable one at a time.

    (Edit) Mod note: Thread moved to General Help and how to for better traffic.

    This much i know. But how can i set them on Disabled status (you can see which are active and which are disabled). When i click on app in settings i get
    2 buttons "UNINSTALL" and "FORCE STOP". It was before a third button "DISABLE" but it is gone on Android 6.0

    Based on your description, those apps you are trying to disable are user apps, not system apps. There isn't any mechanism in Android to disable a user app as if it was a system app.

    There IS a new feature called App Standby though. If you don't use an app for extended periods of time, Android will effectively disable it so it will not run on its own.

    Why do you want to disable a user-installed app, rather than just uninstall it?

    Thanks for the answer. Some apps run in the background without any reason. I don't like it so would like to start them when I want. I need them from time to time. But maybe i will start to uninstall them.
