How to remove "Start screen" shortcut Tile in Windows 8 (for MSI and APP-V)


1. Pin to "start screen" a shortcut, it will come in Start screen.
    I didn’t find any file or registry which creates entry for this. Need to remove this shortcut.
2. Can we handle "Start screen" shortcuts in APP-V ( 5.0, 4.6sp1 ) applications ?
3. I have handled it in MSI by using "ShortcutProperty"

Thanks in advance.

  • Is it a App-V or a MSI, you cant use both technologies....
    The approach to providing a App-V shortcut in is differnt to a MSI as you have to faff with the OSD or what ever it is now in App-V 5. - rileyz 8 years ago
  • It's a App-V application. Shortcut should not come on "Start screen" after publishing application.
    @rileyz- Forget about MSI. And App-v 5.0 doesn't create osd files. - akashrayban 8 years ago
