I used dnfdragora to uninstall chromium, but in the applications drop down menu chromium apps are still in the list even after I restarted my laptop. I've tried rpm -qa | grep chromium nothing happened. I know their is a way to purge I tried sudo dnf --purge chromium but was returned' "no such command chromium," I've tried sudo yum -y erase google-chrome, sudo yum -y erase chrome, sudo yum -y erase chromium, sudo dnf -y erase chromium, I get the reply No match for argument: (fill in the blank) Error: No packages marked for removal. I did rpm -qa | grep chrome and found these: mathjax-winchrome-fonts-2.7.4-2.fc28.noarch, xorg-x11-drv-openchrome-0.6.0-4.fc28.x86_64, python3-chromecast-2.2.0-1.fc28.noarch if I uninstall these will the following apps go away? these files really don't apply to what is left over in the drop down menu they are "Chromebook recovery tool," Yes my wife has a chromebook and it was synced with the chromium browser, HP print is in the list along with mahjong and scanner tool.
Thank you.

Check the directories /usr/share/applications and ~/local/share/applications for the .desktop file related to chromium.

dnf does not have a purge function; that is an Ubuntu thing.

The chrome/chromium apps will be named like so: chrome-knpkfcpnjfbniadmfchjpcigfhookhaa-Default.desktop. Grep is your friend here to find what you want to nuke. Also they will be in ~/.local (prob just a typo above.)
