    Apps won't go away in settings all apps

    I've downloaded steam and on that i've downloaded games when i downloaden warface it started and then i wnted to quit maybe i've done that wrong in some way... But now that i want to delete that app it says that the app is still running i didn't know how to stop the app, i've tried to delete steam (that worked) but now when i search for the games that have been deleted too i see a white paper and trying to open the game will result in a message that says cant open this app.

    what do i do?

    i've placed a thumbnail to explain what i'm talking about
    its the 2 lowest apps btw

    Welcome to the TenForums @DAAN

    If you have an app that is not part of Windows then I would boot to Safe Mode and uninstall it there. Before doing this I would take a restore point and maybe even take an Image of my OS with Macrium Reflect.

    If you are uncomfortable entering safe mode you could always open task manager and find them there. One last thought would be to look through Startup, in task manager, and disable any starts that apply to these games.

    If they are not in Start Up the Sysinternals Autoruns may be of use.

    All changes have risks, have a fall back plan.
