How to remove an icon from launchpad that has been deleted (Uninstalled)

Note: this app does not also appear in Finder anymore but appears on the the Launchpad.
Kindly follow these steps to have it removed.
Note: You have to be logged in as an Administrator of the device.

  • Open Launchpad.
  • Click and hold on an icon until you see all icons jiggle. In this case i will be uninstalling GoToMeeting App.
  • Click the “x” button in the upper-left of you want to delete as shown below.

Note: If you do not see an “x” button, either the app is not from the Mac App Store or you are  not logged in as an Administrator.

  • Finally click on “Delete” in the confirmation dialog box to delete the app.

Note: You can also do this from the command line, but why do you want to complicate line with this simple task 😉
