Removing icons for deleted applications

Post by DaddyWarlock » Mon Sep 14, 2020 1:00 am

I tried using My Phone Explorer but found it really didn't do what I wanted, so I uninstalled it. Problem is, it left the MPE and Uninstall icons behind, and I can't figure out how to get rid of them. I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 and WINE 5.0.2 and any help will be appreciated!

You can probably find these icons in: ~/.local/share/applications or in ~/.local/share/applications/wine

They were in /.local/share/applications/wine/MyPhoneExplorer. I deleted that whole directory (since I'm not using that app) but when I press the Super key they still show up. Do I need to get into the Registry and do some surgery?

Did you logout and login?
Read the WineHQ FAQ for more information about removing remaining icons.

That must have done it. The unwanted icons are gone now. Thanks for the help!
