    I recently switched to Win10, from Win8.1 with classic shell and there is one thing I cant solve

    How can I get rid of the damn Notepad, I am using Notepad++ as default:

    I typically open it with
    - Windows key
    - 'No'
    - Enter
    (I cant post links, so replace the first part with gyazo)
    gyazo /a2848d71cb313e42b277150c788092ce

    problem is, it shows notepad as first entry and I never want to use it.

    I cant unpin it,
    gyazo /157b1b4048f7f6248db9f39b1760a747

    I cant delete it
    gyazo /df482619fd67413318b80ae7edf48285

    how can I get rid of it from the start menu, so that notepad++ is the first entry when I type in 'no'

    first thought was 'how stupid am i' to not have thought about it, but then the context menu did not show a 'rename' :-(

    once I clicked on 'open file location', it does not open the location of .exe but it opens the folder structure of the 'start menu',
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\

    i could even delete the link to the notepad

    kinda strange that there is no way to manipulate the start menu w/o the explorer, well, whatever

    it's solved, thanks
