    Click on the program in Launchpad. If nothing happens, open Launchpad again and it should have a question mark on it. You can remove it now. Restarting the computer sometimes helps too. If the application opens, then it is not correctly uninstalled.

    It is possible to ‘reset’ Launchpad if nothing else works, but then you will lose your custom arrangement. You can do it with this Terminal command:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true && killall Dock
