If you’re like most people, you probably have too many apps on your phone.

From productivity apps you downloaded but never used to games you played for two weeks before abandoning, it’s easy to overload your phone with unnecessary apps.

If you’re an Android user looking to clean up your home screen and pare it down to only what you need and use, there’s good news. Android makes it very easy to clean up your home screen, and you don’t even need to delete the apps to do so permanently.

Android offers you the ability to trash an app altogether. But if you have apps that you don’t want to see every time you open your phone, but also don’t want to delete permanently, Android lets you move them to the app drawer instead.

Moving an app to the app drawer means they won’t be visible on your home screen, but you can still access them without having to redownload them.

Here’s how to permanently or temporarily remove an app on your Android.

To move the app to the app drawer, drag it over to the Remove icon.
