    How Do I Make These Go Away?


    Over the last few months I've been uninstalling aps using Uninstall Apps in Windows 10 All I can figure at some point I got rid of these while the updates were pending install. Question is: How do I get rid of these three leftovers?

    Click on the goat droppings button [ . . . ], and select Hide. I don't know if Microsoft will ever let us un-purchase even a free app...

    Goat Droppings! Wish I'd thought of that. Anyway, "Hidden" is how I can keep them out of sight. But still can't find how to get rid of them from this list.

    I have the CandyCrush item (never asked for), as well as a Canon Printer Manager that I did actually try out, but it did -0-, so I have never reloaded or updated it. I think the items in the store are 'owned' by association with one's Microsoft account, and I can't figure out how to ditch the unwanted ones either. For me, Microsoft Store is more bother than it is worth.

    This Tutorial Uninstall Apps in Windows 10 shows you how to get rid of the apps. Apparently the two Store Apps were pending install when I blew them off and now they're in limbo pending install.

    Good morning @vgkfan83 that's how I got rid of the apps. What I'm left with is these two Store Updates still in the "Pending Install". Candy Crush Soda and Twitter apps are both gone. Thought I'd find a way to get rid of the updates from the store. I can just leave them "hidden" and live with it.

    Thanks for your efforts. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Edit:

    Problem's "mostly" solved @vgkfan83 You made me think, so I let them install and then blew away those two apps again. All I'm left with is the Realtek Audio Control update that fails. Day's off to a good start. Thanks for your help. I do appreciate it. It's a good day in the neighborhood.

    I'm marking this one solved.

    Well it's NOT Solved by no means. This morning Candy Crush Soda and Twitter are back in the Ready To Install Que indicating "Purchased moments ago".
