Weird invisible icons
So i recently installed the 3D modelling software blender but found it expenentially slowed my laptop, so i deleted it but an invisible icon appeared on my taskbar that even if i right clicked and un-pinned would remain there.

My PC run into a problem after diagnostic startup
I've done a few tinkering with my laptop a while ago then out of curiosity and attempt to speed up my laptop I clicked diagnostic startup on msconfig. Now, upon restart, my lock screen shows this message " Something happened and your PIN isn't available". I click set up my Pin and it doesn't work! I've tried a system restore a while ago and it doesn't work too. Safe mode (the thing where you press F4/F5) from system recovery doesn't work as well.
I can't login after waking desktop from sleep mode
I can login with my pin when I press the power button to start the day. When brand-new Lenovo desktop (1903 build) goes to sleep and I try to wake it, the login screen appears as it normally does, but the login box will not take my pin, even though the cursor blinks. If I restart the PC, I can login as normal. Please do not advise to disable login upon waking as this will not work for me. This is extraordinarily frustrating. Thanks for any help.......

Bad Computer...Bad Boy!
Computer was acting up this morning so I decided it needed to be cleansed. All went well. Everything is pretty much back in place except for two things, and I can't figure out how I did it. Previously on my Start Screen I had Sticky Notes, and now for the life of me I get figure out how I got it there. I do remember before Microsoft went and messed thing up one could drag from the taskbar to the desktop! maybe that's what I did! Anyway the second thing is I can't seem to find the flag to turn on the pin websites. Did they take that away, or if you have the flag would you mind posting it please. Thanks
XBOX for PC app will not sign into the Gaming account.
XBOX for PC app will not sign into the Gaming account. It does sign into the Store account. Also recently when signing in Windows started asking for my PIN each time. I feel like this may have something to do with it. But maybe not. The app will randomly sign in on its own if left alone for hours.
RE: Past Conversations Thanks Microsoft for Paying Attention
I'm going to take you all back to a couple of conversations I started on here, the first being Unable to Comment https://community.windows.com/en-us/conversations/unable-to-comment/9694c4ba-5b04-4c37-b42b-82d3caebd580?from=notifications in which I stated that I was no longer able to leave comments on certain websites. I am happy to say that Microsoft fixed whatever the problem was in Canary, and I am able to comment and even sign in again, instead of having to use either the regular version of Edge, or Chrome. Thanks Microsoft. BTW, the sites were mspoweruser.com, and disqus.com just in case you were wondering. No longer able to Pin Websites. https://community.windows.com/en-us/conversations/pinning-websites/79d9cb89-e558-4d17-ac96-4e6cf2b683cd?from=notifications This isn't totally fixed. The fix that is once again available is just the same as you see in Chrome, without the word shortcut is all. I suppose it will work for now.
