Console add-ons are a great way to personalize your Playstation experience. Some add-ons let you swap out the background on your PS4 user interface, while others allow you to change the looks of your controller. The only problem with add-ons is that it can be difficult to manage all of them at once. This guide will walk you through how to delete add-ons on PS4 and make your console a little more manageable.
What are Console Add-ons?
Console add-ons are user-created items that can be downloaded onto your PS4. They change the way that your PS4 interface looks and the controller feels in certain games. You can pick from a variety of different add-ons, like a new background, a new color for your controller, or a sticker pack to decorate your DualShock 4.
Deleting a PS4 Add-on
Deleting a PS4 add-on is a pretty simple process. To do it, you need to navigate to the Add-ons tab in the Playstation Store and locate the add-on you want to delete. Once it’s been selected, press on the Options button on your controller and select “Delete”. This will remove the add-on from your console without any hassle. If this doesn’t work for you, another option would be deleting it from your internet browser by going to Settings > Applications > Manage Software > Downloaded > Search for the app and click Delete.
Replacing a PS4 Add-on
To replace an add-on, you need to head to the “Settings” menu, select “Application Saved Data Management”, and then choose the one you want to replace. Once you have selected the one you want to change, press the “Options” button on your controller. The menu should now have an option that reads “Delete”. Select this option and confirm your deletion. Now, when you go back into your game, it will be without any add-ons at all!
Moving a PS4 Add-on
The first thing you want to do is navigate to the Add-Ons section on your PS4.
Next, press R3 on your controller and go to Manage Storage.
Navigate through the tabs until you find User Generated Content.
Click on it and find the Add-ons folder.
Select one of your add-ons and hit Options (the button with three horizontal lines) to delete it.
So, you want to delete a PS4 add-on. That’s great, but the question is how do you do it?
There are two ways to delete PS4 add-ons. The first is to go into the game that contains the add-on and delete it from there. The second way would be to go into the game’s settings and uncheck the box next to the add-on.
If you’re replacing an add-on, it’s best to just delete the old one and then download the new one. If you move an add-on, you will need to delete it on both consoles.
