    Sorry about that. A few others who got into this state had a corrupted file somewhere, and used this tool to uninstall any aspects of WorkFlowy (https://www.revouninstaller.com/) and then reinstall (https://workflowy.com/downloads/windows/). Let me know if that helps. If not, write to us at help@workflowy.com and we can dig in deeper. Thanks.

    This appears to be a bug with Electron-Builder. We are dependent on them to fix this, alas. https://github.com/electron-userland/electron-builder/issues/2514

    Thanks for the reply. The disappearing icon/not working shortcuts seem to be an Electron-builder issue. But why does Workflowy also disappear from uninstall-menu? (Obviously, the need to install an additional programme just to uninstall Workflowy is somewhat non-ideal. Especially since the programme only allows uninstalling windows apps on its free trial, with 25$ to keep using it.)

    On a perhaps related note (not sure): I noticed that my Workflowy-folder in ...AppData/Roaming has a size of 1.2 GB. That seems large to me. Or is this what is to be expected after a fresh install? It contains 15 versions of an installer-....exe file, with different numbers replacing "...".

    Just happened again today. 3rd time within maybe two weeks. Everytime I have to manually delete Workflowy-left-over files because there is no uninstall option and then reinstall. Its a little annoying.
