Trouble deleting or unpinning broken link on task bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had just updated the Safari browser which installed a new version of the browser.  This left me with two icons on the taskbar.  One which worked and one that had that missing app icon.  When I tried to delete the other non working icon, windows gave me an error saying that it couldn't delete the icon because the program was no longer installed.

    I ended up having to open the location where everything was pinned and playing with the links there.  Once I did that it ended up giving me two links with the right icons which I was able to delete one.

  • The only way I see to avoid the flaw in the Safari install app would have been to do a system restore, uninstall it, then install the new version. Its upgrade instructions failed to remove the old entry.
