    Someone posted the fix from this link and deleted their post again.

    In my own opinion - Windows 10 Pro | Remove Wireless Display Media...

    Anyway I tested it and it works fine - no need to reset.

    Solved :)

    Thanks, then you can install it again in order to have a pure system.

    Add-AppxPackage -Register "C:\Windows\MiracastView\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode

    Interesting. They do scatter these apps around. Gone are the days of putting things in Program Files.

    Funny Miracast gets its own directory in C:\Windows considering how pointless it is really for most people.

    postscript:

    For those who just left it 'as is' and wondered what this apparently non-functional app was for - you can stop wondering.

    Cumulative Update KB4022716 Windows 10 v1703 Build 15063.447 has removed all trace of it.

    Hi,
    I am aware that this thread is rather old and that, in fact, the issue was fixed by KB4022716, but I do wander what do you mean by "pure" system...
    In other words, why is there a need to re-install it again and, above all, would it put the start menu entry back to its place?
    I am asking this because I successfully applied the same procedure to remove the Connect start menu entry (not supported by my machine anyway) both in 1703 and 1709...
    Thanks a lot
