Windows 10: Remove an already deleted app from the notifications list

    Remove an already deleted app from the notifications list

    I noticed I still have an entry for an already deleted app in the list of applications found under notification settings as seen below and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I've searched both my file system as well as the registry to no avail.

    Anyone knows where these entries are stored?

    I would try rebooting the computer and see if that does it.

    If that does not work I would use CCleaner that more than likely will get rid of it.
    CCleaner - Free Download or try CCleaner Professional - Piriform

    It was a long time ago I uninstalled this app so the computer has been rebooted many times since.

    I don't fancy CCleaner that much because I've used it in the past where it removed a bit too much as I recall it.

    Also when the search in Regedit doesn't find a single entry for Input Director I doubt CCleaner would find any.

    Really odd where this list is stored.

    Although not recommended by many forums, I have used a registry editor to locate and delete pesky hold-overs. Before I used my Replendence's Registrar Registry Manager, I first made sure I had current reliable restorable full images of my OS and Data partitions. I have also used before editing's Registry Backup.

    Many thanks for the tip on using different tools but what I was really hoping for was someone knowing where the list is stored so I can get rid of the entry manually in a controlled way.

    Otherwise I'll just let it sit there since it doesn't do any harm. Just feels a bit annoying now that I spotted it and can't get rid of it.

    I'm a Windows 7 user, and I have never found that list.

    Well, I'm not sure if that list even exists in Windows 7. I'm on Windows 10 and these are the Windows 10 forums so...:)
