    There seem to be some apps that have downloaded to my tablet.
    When I run the package installer, it shows them just sitting there.
    They have already been install and I'd like to delete them to free up some space, but I don't know where they are stored.


    any ideas will be most helpful.

    Thanks!!

    To uninstall apps that you've installed: Settings --> Applications --> Manage applications.
    To delete system apps, you need root access with a file manager and go to /system/app folder.

    Hum... thanks.. I was hoping not to root the thing, but I guess it's inevitable...
    Just like Linux. I keep finding with this stuff, I get too into it to just have regular user access.

    Too bad I can't just use the "sudo" command line on Ubuntu Linux!
