    How to remove uninstalled app from menu

    A minor irritation- having removed PlayOnLinux application I find it is still on the applications menu. Anyone ideas on how to remove (wish there was a delete function) this? It may be that a similar error occurs with other apps but this is the first I have experienced.

    System->Preferences->Main Menu

    You can customize/remove the menu items here.

    Right click on the "Applications" on the top panel then "Edit Menus". Right click on the application and choose "delete".

    In this menu you can also hide or show applications, rearrange them, and so on.

    Hi sAm

    You can uncheck them so they don't appear, but highlighting them, right clicking and selecting Delete does not remove them from this listing.
    Or at least it hasn't worked on any of the programs I've installed and removed so far. They still appear under Edit Menu's but are unchecked so they don't appear in the drop down listing.

    Just thought I would mention that, in case there was a way to actually remove them.

    Delete work fine here(?).

    Glad to hear it sAm!

    I guess my problem is I'm still using the reliable 'STABLE' HARDY LTS version!
