    It'll probably disappear on it's own after a couple of reboots.
    The Windows 10 OS is still very VERY buggy and can't be relied on for stability or ease of function.

    Have you tried this?

    See if you can find the program tile here: C:\Users\YourNameHere\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    and try deleting it.

    Nothing in there ether. The short cut offers me to resize to small or unpin but it won't unpin and when i click the tile it does nothing.

    You could try opening an admin command prompt, and copy & paste this in, and let it run through and rebooting:

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\&fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:&Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase&pause

    A not so orthodox suggestion :
    Reinstall the program > unpin the tile > uninstall the program.
