Windows 10: Unpin web shortcut from 'All apps' ? Solved

    Unpin web shortcut from 'All apps' ?


    Hi - playing around with Win10 I managed to pin a web shortcut to my All Apps menu, however it doesn't seem possible to remove it from there. A right click on it just gives options to pin to Start or Taskbar and a left click opens the web page. Pinning to Start/Taskbar leaves the shortcut in place in All Apps.
    Any ideas how to remove ?

    If you right click or Shift/right click on the item you should see 'Open file location', choose that and it will bring you to where the shortcut is stored then right click and delete it from there.

    I can't believe I never thought of clicking on 'Open File Location' ! That worked,of course.
