    Odd bug: strange entry in the list of installed apps

    I noticed earlier today a strange entry in my list of installed apps/programs in the state menu. All it says is TrayItem followed by a list of characters. You can see it in the image below. I am not sure why its there, but I do know when it appeared. It showed up after I ran into an issue with the system clock. I didn't notice til this morning that it thought the time zone was Pacific Time. After changing it to eastern and putting it on the right hour, I thought everything was fixed until later I realized it was actually ahead by 12 hours, so I had to change the time to pm from am, and the date back an hour. The action center then kept telling me I had to login again but wasn't giving me an option to do so. Restarting didn't help, and I eventually found a solution online which required switching to a local account and back to back to my Microsoft account. After doing this, the TrayItem appeared but the error went away, and I haven't had any other issues since. I just find the entry being there annoying and want to know if anyone knows how to get rid of it. I've tried opening it, and uninstalling it, but neither of those actually did anything. Is there maybe a registry key that needs to be messed with?

    Well, now I feel silly. I right-clicked the item, clicked "Open File Location" and it showed the shortcut file. I deleted it, signed out and back in, and its no longer listed there. Feel like an idiot for posting before figuring out I could do that.
