    Show notifications from these apps


    I went to "Turn notifications on or off". Then to PC settings. And it says "Show notifications from these apps".
    It lists Calendar, games, mail, messaging, music, Outlook 2013, store and video. But the icon for Outlook 2013 is missing. How can I fix this?

    This article may help to answer your question; however, I cannot verify its accuracy because I don't use Outlook 2013. Anyway here it is and good luck:

    Somehow I got it fixed. I deleted Outlook from the taskbar. Then pinned it to the taskbar again. When I went back to settings the icon shows.

Store: update notifications for uninstalled Apps? in Windows Updates & Activation
For the last month or so, Windows Store now reports available updates for applications I have uninstalled, like Sports and Finance. This did not happen in the past. Does the same happen for you, too? Is it a problem, or a devious and annoying way to trick us into reinstalling these Windows 8 apps?
