    Still listed in the notification area

    So I had to uninstall an A/V program because I am using another one. I went in to my System > Notification & actions > clicked on Select which icons appear on the taskbar and down on the list the A/V is still there though it has no icon picture; just a blue square box. My new A/V is listed and doing just fine.

    Is there something that Windows 10 does that clears out any old remnant of programs listed here that I can run?

    If you just uninstalled, if R-click and 'Unpin from taskbar' doesn't do it, just try to restart or shut down and restart.

    Hello AirPower4ever,

    Resetting your notification area icons may be able to sort this for you.

    Thanks Brink, that did it. Nice and clean again, worked like a charm.

    Again, thanks
