    Entries in the Start Menu can't be removed

    Hi there,

    I have two entries in my Start Menu that can't be removed. Both the programs have been uninstalled from my computer, but their entries are still there.

    I tried:

    1. Going to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs to remove them there, but they aren't listed there either.
    2. Clicking on the entries in the Start Menu. Nothing happens.
    3. Right clicking and selecting "Uninstall", nothing happens.
    4. Right clicking, going to "More" and selecting "Run as administrator". Nothing happens.
    5. Right clicking, going to "More" and selecting "App Settings". Opens and list of apps, and of course, it doesn't list these entries, as they've been uninstalled.
    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    How do you pin the control panel to the start menu?


    What version of Win 10 are you on? The RTM version no longer has this option, at least not by normal means.

    Notice no Control Panel in this menu and no Start Menu tab in taskbar properties.
