I had installed AWS Workspaces, a .msi file through wine. It was installed successfully but didn't run the way I had expected so I uninstalled it through wine uninstaller but the icon still appears on the application menu. How can I remove it from there? I have AppEditor but I don't want to just hide it, I want to know why it is there even after uninstalling and how I can remove it permanently. From my end I have gone into .wine folder in home directory and removed all folders related to this app. Am I missing something?
