So, I had an app, and removed it (moved to trash)

Now, I can see its icon in launchpad (when I click it says "You can't open the application "Name" because it is in the trash.). With only button OK.

How do I remove it from Launchpad completely?

Emptying the trash would have worked as well. Launchpad shoes all apps it finds via spotlight, not just those who are in the Applications folder.


I restored it from trash and removed again and icon disappeared
