    Zombie CandyCrushSaga folders left after uninstallation


    Needing more space on C:, I discovered three folders under C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ containing various versions of Candy Crush Saga, totalling 600 MB.
    • No Candy Crush-type apps are found under Apps & Features.
    • Trying to delete the folders fails because they are owned by SYSTEM.
    • In an elevated Powershell, `Get-AppxPackage | findstr Name > C:\Users\Charles\AppData\Local\Temp\WindowsApps.txt` returns nothing related to CCS.
    How can I get rid of them?

    :)

    • Right-click on the file or folder you want to delete.
    • Click the Security tab.
    • Click Advanced and then Owner.
    • Check the box next to your user name for Full Control.
    • Click Apply and then try deleting the folder again.

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder


    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
