Remove wine menu entries in Ubuntu and other distributions

Wine Logo

After uninstalling a program through Wine, I noticed that the menu items associated with the program had not been removed. If you ever encounter this issue yourself, try the following.

Enter your home directory, then press the control + h on your keyboard to view the hidden files and folders in the directory

Search for the .local folder and the navigate to the following directory.

/share/applications/wine/Programs/


Inside the programs folder you will find all the menu entries for the programs installed via Wine. Deleted the shortcuts/folder for the program you just uninstalled.

You might find that the menu entries still exist, log out and then log back in, should finally remove the menu items.
