The PS5 surprised everyone with its fantastic new Dualsense controller, modernised UI, exclusive game line-up and bold design. It had an amazing start to the year, with games like Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Tourismo 7 dropping in just a few months after their release.

We’ve got a few questions regarding the same and we’re going to clear one of them right now, i.e. “How to delete, remove, and hide games from the PS5 home screen.”

Deleting the games from the PS5 home screen

To delete a game from the PS5 home screen, just head over to “Home“, navigate to the game that you want to delete, press the options button on your controller, and then click on “Delete“. Confirm the prompt message and the game will be deleted and no longer appear on your PS5 home screen.

Removing the games from the PS5 home screen

Unfortunately, you can’t just remove a particular game from your home screen without deleting it. This is one of the issues that annoy PS5 users. Sony is yet to give you more access to customise the home screen. The only way right now to remove a game from the home screen is by deleting it from your console.

Hide the games on the PS5 home screen.

Turn on the “Hidden Games” option, and you’ll be able to see all the games that you’ve hidden.
