    Remove icons from uninstalled apps on "All apps"


    Hi
    Is anyway to edit "all Apps", especially to remove some icons from?
    I have uninstalled Edge, but the icon is still in Start menu of “all apps”.

    Hello Brink
    Unfortunately, I didn't find anything to solve the problem, as I posted. Such incons like “Contact support“, „cortana“, „edge“, „feedback“ seem to be not removable, am I right?
    thx

    @ DETOM:
    Not sure how you accomplished 'uninstalling' Edge as it is a system app and doesn't have an option to uninstall, per se.
    You could try: C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Application Shortcuts
    and remove specific items.(Do so at your own risk, though and make backups)

    Yep, Windows apps (aka: modern apps) cannot be removed from All apps unless you uninstall the app. Since these are system apps, it is not recommended to try and uninstall them.
