    Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps


    Hello all,

    I am new here, although I did come here quite a few times and many times found the solution Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps :)

    My problem is (I am on 1511) that some icons of removed (by powershell) apps reapeared, and there seem to be no way to get rid of them. Nothing I have found had worked (like going to start menu folder and deleting the shorcuts).

    Namely it's MicrosoftWindowsAlarms, MicrosoftZuneMusic, MicrosoftWindowsPhotos, and in Apps the name looks like this: @{Microsoft.WindowsAlarms_10.1607.1991.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwems-resource--Microsoft.WindowsAlarms-Resources-AppName-Text}

    Moreover, few days ago some "new" apps have materialized - that was a shock........no update, nothing, out of blue I had about 10 unwanted apps in my all apps...............crazy.

    Any thoughts?

    P.S. Normally I deffer updates by turning the service off and/or metered connection. Now I have left it on by mistake...........still should not install against my will some unwanted apps..........and as I said, no update.....

    :)

    Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps

    Those left-over icons may be a result of deleting programs instead of using Control Panel, Programs and Features to uninstall the programs. When a program is installed the install routine puts the program files in either C:\Program Files [32-bit] or C:\Program Files for 64-bit or C:\Program Files (x86) for 32-bit depending upon which version of the OS is in use. It will also create the icons, write support files to C:\Windows or other Folders and create Registry entries so Windows knows how to run the program. The uninstall routine is supposed to get rid of everything associated, don't know if PowerShell can do it as cleanly.

    Did I sound that stupid?

    Deleting programms instead of uninstalling? Well, even in the question subject I said 'uninstalled'. You seem to answer someone's else question about 'Can I delete a programm?'

    These are not programms, but windows apps, some part of Windows - they behave differently

    Hi, you're right, universal apps don't use the registry and can't be uninstalled using the control panel. A totally different paradigm.

    Not quite sure where you're seeing this, but it was the case that where @ prefixed start menu entries, it was bad news and things were corrupted. (In those days when the powershell command to remove apps broke things).

    I would guess there are two possible ways you might find apps reappearing:
    1. the 4 hourly scheduled update installing a new copy (could that introduce new apps? I don't know).
    2. a windows update that added or replaced apps you had removed.

    My personal approach is
    a. not to use apps
    b. not to bother removing them- they use a bit of space but no significant resources
    c. they will be replaced when an upgrade or an in-place upgrade repair install is applied.

    It's certainly not worth fiddling with the start menu in such circumstances - in my opinion.

    If you right click start menu entries for apps you've installed, there is an uninstall option- not for those provided as a package with Windows, as you know.

    What are the new ones?

    If you wish to fix broken apps as supplied by MS, you might be able to re-install, re-register them
    Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Option 2:
    Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums


    Otherwise you can try
    sfc /scannow
    from an admin command prompt

    but I would suspect you may need to resort to an in-place upgrade repair if you felt it worthwhile. [/quote] L: My Computer
