    Hi, go to
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    and
    C:\Users\-----\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    and remove them from there.

    Or you could use Open Shell (free) as an editor... even if you don't want to use it as a start menu.
    Hint- Open Shell makes accessing those folders easy.

    Then there are programs like Glary Utilities (see option bottom right)

    - and Ccleaner has a Start menu shortcuts option.
