That's It!

You have now successfully removed app from your site content. 


When an App  is deleted, it initially goes into the site/user Recycle Bin and is retained there for 30 days. After 30 days, the item is automatically deleted from the site/user Recycle Bin and moved to the Site Collection Recycle Bin. We recommend you to maintain this flow and do not remove it from Recycle Bin unless required.

Thank you for your attention!
