Hi Everyone,

How do you delete an app from your ITunes library so it stops asking for them to be updated even though you've deleted the apps from your devices?

Thanks,

    Click on the App you want to delete and type the Delete key.

    The app does not respond to the function of the delete key on my keyboard. In Itunes it only gives the option `hide` (verberg in dutch).

    I read elsewhere to delete from the control menu but that doesn't show up either. Removed apps are still in the iTines library with "Install" as opposed to live apps which have a "Remove" button. Some I may want to reinstall in the future but others I just want to get rid of completely. How do I do that?
    iTunes 11.4, iMac running Mavericks, 3rd generation iPad.

    You mean you are viewing apps on the iPhone using iTunes.

    If you want to delete them from iTunes, do not view them on the iPhone.

    Select them in iTunes and press Delete.

    Thank you, but I guess I wasn't clear. I'm not on the phone, I'm in iTunes on the iMac, with the iPad plugged in and selected. All the apps are listed with either an "Install" button or a "Remove" button. I want to delete the ones that have an "Install" button across from them. As a previous poster indicated, hitting Delete doesn't have any effect at all. I read elsewhere that holding the Control key and clicking (which usually produces a menu), then deleting, would do it, but that has no effect either.

    Okay. You are viewing the apps in iTunes that you can sync.

    The iPad has absolutely nothing to do with deleting apps in iTunes.

    Unplug the iPad, eject it from iTunes, click Apps in iTunes and delete the apps.
