    How do I delete this from my Launchpad?:
    (The .Skype_Upgrade)

    Usually I would delete whatever from my Applications folder then delete the icon in Launchpad, but I don't see that icon in my Apps folder :confused:

    hold til it jiggles for MAS apps.

    for non-MAS app, the above method doesn't work.

    Don't you just delete it from your applications folder?

    You can just delete the app from the application folder and that will remove it from launchpad even if you get it from the app store or from the internet

    Like I said, the .Skype_Upgrade icon is NOT in my app folder.

    Hidden file

    Files that start with a full stop are hidden. Use Terminal:
    cd /Applications
    rm .Skype_Upgrade

    To see hidden files in Terminal use
    ls -a
