    My Start screen shows the AP tile (Associated Press) but the detailed view of all installed apps has no entry for this app. How can I get rid of this erroneous tile?

    Find the offending AP tile. Right-click on it. Uninstall.

    It took me some time to figure out how to right click with a pen

    Great.

    Also, you may want to visit Settings, Devices, Touchpad, and disable the “Tap ...” entries, but enable the “ ... corner ... “ setting. The touchpad is a bit difficult when a mere tap counts as a mouse click.
