    Uninstalled Apps still show in Metro start menu

    Hey all,

    So as the title says, Im unable to remove the icons from the Start menu "app" section, not a huge deal, but makes it look ugly having a whole bunch of unusable tiles there

    so I followed Brink's walk-through

    "Apps" Screen - Add or Remove Items in Windows 8

    and still having them there and not able to be deleted..

    Click image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger version

    so any ideas of what I can do?

    when you right click the icon - choose Open FIle Location - then delete the shortcut or folder from start menu
    may have to do it for %user% and %allusers%
