Using the tutorial below to reset the notification area icons should be able to remove the old uninstalled programs.
Notification Area Icons - Reset in Windows 10
Are all the black icons for uninstalled programs?
As a test, see if installing and uninstalling one of these programs again may sort it if there was an issue the last time it was uninstalled.
there i test with uninstalling vlc player...then i installing again.. the icon on notification still black..and when im uninstalling..the icon still there even vlc player is not on my pc again..i think this some kind of glitch..??is it? and rain meter is still there even i dont have that program installed on my pc almost5 days now..thanks
Yep, something is not right. I'm just not sure what yet.
I can't seem to get rid of the 2 items shown on the attached image.
I ran the .bat file without success...there doesn't seem to be any record of either Program in the registry either.
Any further suggestions, please?
Running this below as a .bat file will reset and clear the Show notifications from these apps list. The list will automatically repopulate as apps provide notifications next.
However, this will also break the live tiles of apps on Start.
Code:@echo off :: To reset and clear Notifications & actions "Show notifications from these apps" Reg Delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" /v AppDB /F :: To kill and restart explorer taskkill /f /im explorer.exe start explorer.exe
