    Deleting Apps in start menu

    I deleted a browser a long time ago and, today, when looking for an app I noticed the browswer software was still in apps list in start menu. It would not delete, so did this route and got it. Dont know if this is of any value but thought I'd tell you.

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    When a shortcut isn't working anymore, you'll get a request to delete it.
