    How do I repair apps in the notification list


    Under System - Notifications & actions - Show notifications from these apps I have three entries that have no symbol and a strange looking name.

    I noticed these strange looking apps after the Anniversary update.

    I think the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps can be removed from this list as they have been mergered to the Feedback Hub, but I don't know how to do this.

    The Microsoft.Messaging app looks like it need to be repaired, but which is the best way to do this?

    I would really appreciate some help in resolving this issue as it is starting to get on my nerve.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for letting me know about this tutorial.

    I used the tutorial to reset the Messaging app and now the first entry has vanished from the notifications list.

    I couldn't find the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps in Apps & features, only the Feedback Hub which is shown correctly in the notifications list.

    Now I need to find a way to remove these two apps from the notifications list.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks.

    How to uninstall Apps using Powershell
    I tried to uninstall the two Apps using Powershell, but the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps couldn't be found.

    Seems like they have already been uninstalled, but are still showing in the notifications list.

    Any idea how theses apps can be removed from the notifications list?

    Thanks.

    Might be easier if people saw what you are seeing. Could you produce a screen print. Watch you don't expose user names or other privacy info when posting (email address etc)

    I'm using a German version of Windows 10, so I'll only make the revelant screenshots so that you can see what I'm referring to.

    As these app are not listed in Apps & Features it would seem that they have already been uninstalled, but not removed from the notifications list.

    This command is slightly different in Brink's tutorial, within Option 2. Maybe that will do trick.

    If they let you set slider off, I would, then I would ignore. Three months of so we get another build and hopefully that will address. Good luck.

    I used Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName in Powershell, but it didn't list the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback apps.

    This seems to confirm that both apps have been uninstalled, but still showing in the Notifications list with a stange looking name.

    Now that I know what the problem is I hope someone will be able to help inexplaining how to delete uninstalled apps from the notification list.
