  1. Uninstalled apps remain visible under Startup apps


    I recently removed a bunch of launchers from my PC [Windows 10]; however, these programs still appear in;
    Task Manager > Startup
    i still have the option to disable/enable them but they do not go away. I currently have all of them disabled.

    Uninstalled apps remain visible in "Apps & Features" Community

    L.s.,

    I asked this question earlier (Uninstalled apps remain visible in "Apps & Features" )but got no working solution so I'll stubbornly try again:

    Home pc with standard Windows 10 setup here, nothing fancy.

    I have installed several apps and then uninstalled them via the Apps & Feature page. Although the programs appear removed (their files and folders are gone) they remain visible in the Apps & Features page as if they are still installed. I can click the uninstall
    button for the app; it will tell me that the app will be removed but after I ok that nothing happens.

    Most installs and uninstalls work fine and almost all uninstalls result in removing the entry from the list.

    It used to be so that if Windows (7) encountered this, it would say something like 'the program is no longer installed; do you wish to remove this entry from the installed programs list?' Don't know how Windows 8 dealt with this.

    Is there a way to remove these faulty entries?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest in Windows 10 .We sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused.
