I have a Wunderlist Add-in for Microsoft Outlook that I cannot figure out how to remove. About a year ago, on May 6th, 2020, Wunderlist transitioned to Microsoft To Do. Since then, the Wunderlist Add-in for Microsoft Outlook has been removed from the Office Store. However, my account still retains the Wunderlist Add-in and there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it. No big deal, except the Wunderlist menu keeps showing up in various places. (See screenshot below)

Even if I 'Customize the Ribbon...' to remove the Wunderlist menu, it will eventually reappear on its own. Any ideas on how to uninstall this extinct Add-in since it's no longer listed in 'My Add-ins' for Outlook? Thanks for any insights.

I'm sorry to see no suggested resolutions have yet been received here. I can say I, too, suffer from the same issue. Further, I am uncertain if the presence of the Wunderlist options, in the right-click context menus in Outlook online are preventing me from sending emails there to tasks.

Microsoft Support has told me I have to phone the Office support number 800-892-5234 to pursue a resolution of this. At some point, I may have to set aside the time to do that. I'm surprised someone else hasn't found (and posted details online regarding) a resolution to this issue.

The orphaned addins cannot be removed by the end user - I have Microsoft's Outlook Contact Manager (among others) that I canno get rid of. I've spoken to Microsoft about it - specifically about not removing the addins when they are removed from the store. At this time there is no solution - they told me that support can't always remove the code either, although I suspect that is not true because after my complaints, contact manager was removed from one account.

Thank you, Mark and Diane, for responding. This sort of stuff drives me nuts. Maybe Microsoft will fix this someday.

ok, here is how I removed mine:
...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Wef\...\...\Manifests\
Look for the Manifests Subfolder in AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Wef
Locate the file that contains:
<ProviderName>Wunderlist</ProviderName>
Copy that file somewhere you can easily access it and add .xml to the filename

In Outlook go to File -> Manage Add-Ins
and open the Web-Addins site
Click on My add-ins -> Custom add-ins -> + Add a custom add-in -> Add from file ...
Select the above renamed xml file and install it

Now you have Wunderlist installed under Custom add-ins.

Finally, click on the 3 dots -> Remove

You're welcome!

I noticed my orphan (Starbucks) was not listed in My Addins - I wonder if just deleting the manifest file from the hard drive would remove it.... Starbucks is only orphan app I see so I can't test my theory now that I tried your method.

contact manager disappeared from my toolbar some time ago and there is no manifest for it.... I had a couple of others, but don't see their buttons now either.

I tried deleting the manifest file prior to the above mentioned method, but it didn't work. It somehow was restored from somewhere
