    Remove UWP Apps from Start Menu Without Uninstalling


    Hello,

    I finally made the move to Windows 10 from Windows 7. I'm still adjusting and have found this forum incredibly helpful. I have a question about the UWP apps that come with Windows 10...

    I would like to remove the icons for the UWP apps from the Start menu. I'd prefer to not uninstall the apps since I'd like to try and avoid any problems down the road if they end up being needed for something. I've found several tutorials for removing the apps from the current user, all users, etc. but have not found anything indicating that just the icons can be removed.

    So, am I stuck with these things in the Start menu for good unless they are uninstalled?

    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Cannot uninstall twitter app in Windows 10

    Apps & Features? That's what the other person just suggested and it doesn't work. The blank Twitter isn't listed.

    How do you remove things from the Start Menu | All Apps list if they are UWP apps? There must be some way to modify the list and remove the icon. What file, directory or registry entry specifies this listing of Apps? Please let me know.

  3. Add or Remove Items for All Apps in Start menu in Windows 10  


    Hi, @Brink:

    My caffeine titer is low, so I must be missing some blatant, basic step to add a shortcut to my account's All Apps list in the Start menu (Option1).
    The new process both for creating shortcuts and for adding/removing items to the Win10 start menu has me flummoxed.
    Your tutorials are always "topnotch", so this must be a cockpit error on my part.

    >I would like to follow the suggestion on page 1 of the wushowhide.diagcab tutorial to add a shortcut in All Apps for my account.

    I have d/l the wushowhide.diagcab and saved it to my downloads folder.
    I have done Step 1 on Page 1 of THIS tutorial to navigate to the Start Menu Programs folder.
    But HOW do I actually complete Step 3 to create a shortcut and then add it to the Start Menu "All Apps"??

    I think I need to first somehow create a shortcut for the .cab file and then add it to All Apps in the start menu???

    Please advise.

    Thanks!
    MM

    P.S. I have been postponing the probably inevitable installation of Class Shell.
    I would rather not have to install a 3rd-party program to be able to perform basic Windows tasks.
    But this new workflow in Win10 for a basic functionality might force me to do it.
    Sigh.

  4. Remove UWP Apps from Start Menu Without Uninstalling

    Start Menu Most Used - App Stuck & Won't Remove :/


    Hello all,

    Using Windows 10 v1511. I have recently uninstalled an app by right-clicking on the start menu and selecting Uninstall.

    However, the tile (albeit a blank one) is stuck in the Most Used list in the Start Menu. No matter how many times I right-click on it and select 'Don't show in this list', it still remains and won't budge.

    Is there a manual way of removing it from the list?

    Thanks! Remove UWP Apps from Start Menu Without Uninstalling :)
