    Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps

    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 Computers[/i] You need to have JavaScript enabled so that you can use this ... Computer Type: Laptop
