    Weird tile don't go away... cannot uninstall or nothing...

    Hi there!!

    After my failed atempt to use build 1703, I decided to upgrade to 1607 and stay there at least until 1703 works with my stuff... However, I'm in the middle of a weird problem... well, more like an annoyance... seems MS upgraded their Feedback App (Now it's Feedback Hub), but Windows Instalation left me this weird tile (leftover I assume) in my start menu... not a biggie, but this looks broken... is there any way to remove this? I tried from the settings app, control panel, right click (This one doesn't show the uninstall option, not even a remove thing), and even powershell, but this last only works with the hub version and not this...

    Any clue on how I can get rid of this tile? I even tried to mess with the Tile database in AppData folder (with a backup, of course) But I can't just get rid of this particular tile...

    Thanks in advance for any comment or advice I can get.

    See ya!!!

    P.S. I attach screenshot of my issue...

    I had 5 of these about 3 weeks ago but can't remember exactly what I did to clear them.

    Did you look in the Program Files\WindowsApps folder? If you find a folder there with the exact name of the problem entry (not feedbackhub), you might try deleting it.

    Otherwise, I'll keep trying to remember how I did it.

    In short, the start menu database corrupted itself after the upgrade... I'm unsure if I should just do a new profile or not... but if everything works now, I guess I'm leaving it as is now... It's funny, when I upgraded to 1703 build, the start menu was just perfect, even when I reverted back to 1511... well... such is life. At least the OS is working smooth.

    Thank you again for the help

    I now remember what I did.
    However, your case is a little different due to the name change of the app. Using powershell, I removed all apps and then reinstalled all apps. The corrupted entries went away. I don't know if it'll work in your case due to the name change. Note that the corruption I had was seen right after the Creators upgrade.
