    How can I group the list in the Apps list?

    Sorry bad title, hard to explain the issue. I'll try to do better now.

    On my Apps list is the installed apps. As expected. But many of the installed apps include more than just the app in the list. An example, I have installed RoboForm on the Apps List is a list of several RoboForm icons. The icons, Buy RoboForm, Generate Passwords, New version check, RoboForm, RoboForm Editor, Search Box, Search Files, Taskbar Icon, and Uninstall. A total of 9 Icons for this one program (App.) I have other apps with the same issue, but RoboForm is the worst. Is there a way to group these icons so that I only have 1 RoboForm icon? There are also other icons on the list that I would like to delete such as the "Register Device" that came with my new Dell laptop. It was registered now I don't need / want to be reminded to do that again.

    Hopefully this makes sense to readers, it is very frustrating to me.

    Hello Ron,

    If you like, you can sort the Apps screen by name, date installed, most used, or category. Name or category may be best for what you are wanting.
    Afterwards, you can also add or remove items from your Apps screen.
    Hope this helps,

Hi all, When I turned on my computer today, I noticed that my apps list in the start menu now has letter groups, rather than just being in a short list. Considering most of the letters only have one app, it's not really necessary. I'm guessing this happened in some windows update. Is there...
