I installed and configured SharePoint 2013 and everything was fine. Because of the difficulty in Navigating to our home page from MySIte, I decided to add a link to Home Page, which was fine. But unfortunately, I dont know how link "Page Not Found" got to appear on my quick link navigation. See below:

All my efforts to remove it was not successful. When I clicked Edit link, Page Not Found is not available for editing or removal. Also, when I Navigate to Settings->Site Settings->Navigation, I still cant remove the link, despite the fact that I selected structured Navigation without choosing Show Pages or Sites.

Please can someone help me to get this link out?

Does it direct you to the home page if you click on "Page not found" ?
Try editing it via SharePoint designer. Ensure you login with farm account while editing.

I've found that if the User Profile Root site collection has the Site Publishing feature created, then a Pages library is created, and if there's a PageNotFound.aspx in that library, the issue appears!  I deleted that document in the /pages library and the problem went away!
