    I have bought an app but it has stopped working. Is there a way to delete that app from the purchase history so I will never be able to download it again unless I would have to re purchase it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think you can, unless the app gets unpublished (maybe).

    You can, if you are logged on the official windows phone site, you click on your mobile's name, and then my purchases i think, you can delete the history for all downloaded/purchased app. Is this what you are looking for?

    Not exactly to delete it. I mean it to delete the app as in. Even through I purchased it with real money. I want to delete it so wouldn't be able to download it again.

    That's not possible. You can delete the app but you will be able to download it again.

    Not possible to remove items from your purchase history. It's the history of all purchases. Items that you don't re-install move down your list since they get sorted from most recent to oldest, but that's about it, that I'm aware of.

    The purchase history gives you the list of all the apps bought or free apps installed on your phone. The list cannot be modified at all. The apps will always remain there in the list that's the way Microsoft has designed the site.

    You can uninstall the app from your phone that's all. By deleting people mean uninstalling the app. I hope my explanation was decent enough. :)

    Even I would love if Microsoft gave us control over the purchase history so that we could knock off some apps from the list and keep the list nice and clean.
    EssThree and wpfanboy17 like this.

    Would be nice if Microsoft would allow for lists like favorites or more specific lists of apps to be created and then used to batch install.
