The other day, in the Answers section, a user asked us what was that X that appeared when you hovered over the list of applications downloaded from the Mac App Store. Well, that X serves to hide applications that we don’t want to be shown again in that list. An interesting option if we have decided not to use that application anymore or if we share the account with our partner. When they are few it doesn’t matter, but when the number grows they start to bother us.

If you download many applications from the Mac App Store or iTunes App Store for iOS, you’ll know that when you restore without backup, finding the ones you want to install from that list is tiresome. Let’s show you how to manage the list of applications downloaded from the App Store or Mac App Store .

Removing applications from the Mac App Store list

To remove applications from the Purchased list, simply hover the mouse over the application. An X will appear and after pressing it the application will disappear . But don’t worry, if you ever want it to appear again, just go to the menu Shop -> View my account.

A window will appear showing a section called iTunes in the cloud and the number of hidden applications . If we want them to reappear, we click on View hidden purchases. Select the one you want to come back and click Show.

From iOS, if we want to hide any application, we go to the Update -> Purchase section. Now move your finger over the application in a horizontal direction and the Hide button will appear. Press it and it will disappear from the list.

To display them again we’ll go to our account page in iTunes and there we can manage them again to display them or not again. But there’s more, we’ll also be able to do the same with music and books.
