Start menu Missed one

First off. Thank you for adding the tool. But, you missed one. I ran it on my system and it missed an icon.

It is not "Can it be done?" but rather, "How can we do it?"

Hi Jim.

Yeah, I started to reply and then forgot to submit (as usual).

Currently UVK searches in the apps virtual folder (shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}) and executes the Unpin from start verb in all items (if available). If that shortcut was not present in that location, it would remain.

I can try making it search in other places, such as the desktop folder. It would probably help if you could tell that shortcut's original file location.

Hum... I don't think deleting or changing that value will do much, but I'll try it out anyway. If you right-click the start menu shortcut, do you have the Open file location option? If so, where does it take you to?

Thanks, Jim. I'm going to create a new user account to try to reproduce that.

Fred, those three are also not installed either. They are like ads from the windows store.

Yes, those are suggestions. I managed to reproduce this I think I figured out how to remove them all, but the Windows file explorer process will have to be restarted. Checking out other options now.

Hey Fred
The new update worked flawlessly on a few machines then yesterday I tried it again and it left about 4 tiles. I ran it again to see it would remove those 4 and it actually added about 6 more tiles
