For those who are neat/tidy/ocd freaks such as myself, your likely familair with the one click solution for removing some of windows bloatware.

In this case the connect app. The solution i speak of is the wimtweak+batch file from winaero.com.

Has always worked exactly as wanted/expected. Unfortunately this time I decided to install an insider build and it not only put connect back, but now it was there twice. A blank icon called connect, was right next to the new shiny connect windows took it upon itself to install.

No problem! I just busted out my trusty ole one click removal system and went to town. Unfortunately this only removed the newly installed connect and it left me with the broken/blank shortcut that was never there previously.

As yo ucan imagine, im here pleading for a way to make this blank shortcut to "connect" disappear.
