Can I disable Chrome on my Note 10+?? (I currently use the phone's built in with VPN) How badly would this affect my other apps, if at all?

If mean Google Chrome Browser, you can disable or uninstall it as long as it's not a System app & no, it shouldn't affect anything else on your device.

Thank you! (lI don't think it's a system app, just pre-installed 'bloatness', lol. (I used to love Chrome a few years ago, but now with all the security issues & BS, I'd rather NOT use it.)

Use this method uses adb permissions to Uninstall most bloatware .
Depending on your galaxy device , the list might appear different on your phone but chrome one is the same .
Heads up some of these on this list are system are and depending on your firmware might cause problems . So only uninstal what you know to be safe to uninstal. Also the same way you uninstal these apps you can install them the same way by just changing the script.

adb doesn't actually uninstall system apps. It only disables them & you can't see them.

If you Factory Reset after, they will come back 😉

That's interesting considering I've actually uninstalled system apps like the phone . But hey you know everything, so we will say you are right.

Nah, I don't know everything, but I do know a lot of Developers on XDA.

One of the Devs is Zachary Wander, who confirmed what I believed to be the case, that adb uninstall doesn't actually uninstall system apps, only disables & also disables from view.

Since you are familiar with XDA, look up Zachary Wander, aka Zacharee1.

Whatever, I'll take the word of a recognised developer & a contributor to XDA over your "beliefs".

You only THINK, that you uninstalled system apps with adb, but they are still there. A Factory Reset negates anything you do with adb & un-hides the system apps that you never actually uninstalled. 

But I guess you believe that it magically installs what was uninstalled lol 😂 

Continue with your delusions, they must give you comfort.. 🙄
