    Hi there

    Apologies if this has already been discussed. I did do a search but unfortunately I couldn't find any possible solutions that seemed to work.

    So I'm on DP3 and all seems to be fine except this. There was recently an iMovie update which I did after installing DP3 but unfortunately I'm on a slow connection here and for one reason or another I had to restart the download a couple of times. It picked up where it left off, but now I'm left with 3 icons that do nothing at all and don't seem to be removable. Holding alt and then clicking the cross does nothing.

    I tried to do a refresh of the launchpad through terminal but may not have done it right as nothing has changed.

    It's not exactly a major issue but I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas about removing it. I've tried simple things like doing a full reboot and whatnot.

    Image is attached.

    Cheers
    Alex

    You can solve the issue in the launchpad by running the command from post #3 in your terminal.

    here it is again:
    defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock
