    Interesting quirk with Start -> Apps listing of Microsoft Edge


    Hi all -

    Please see this picture:


    Interesting quirk with Start -> Apps listing of Microsoft Edge [​IMG]


    Look under Apps.

    I have Microsoft Edge listed under All Programs and Apps and I don't understand why it is also listed under Apps.
    Anyway, note the entry - the Icon is gone and just a stub is left.

    Short of uninstalling and reinstalling Edge I would like to know three things:

    1) Why is Edge listed under Apps in the first place?
    2) What has happened to it's Icon?
    3) How can I just remove that one Apps entry for Edge without affecting the entire install of Edge?

    I still want Edge to be listed under Programs.

    Rather than mess with removing packages, I thought to get some opinions first.

    TIA! *Biggrin

    :)

    Remove microsoft apps from the start menus app list: Windows 10 includes something like 23+ programs which aren't likely to be commonly used.
