    Default Remove app suggestions from Start menu in Windows 10

    Here’s a small Windows 10 tip. In Windows 10 a new ‘feature’ or a suggestion where Windows suggests you an app in the Start menu below the Most used apps. Though many users won’t mind this app suggestion, but some users find it annoying and considers them as app ads. This app suggestion is based on your app usage history. So if you are one of those who feel annoyed and wants them to be removed, here’s a way to disable them.

    To disable this app suggestion,

    • Open Settings > Personalization > Start
    • And switch off ‘Occasionally show suggestions in Start’


    That’s all. Now you won’t get those app suggestions.

    You can easily get to the Start Menu’s folder structure on the hard drive and edit, rearrange, or even add new items to the All Apps view in the Windows 10 start menu. This will also give you the benefit of being able to search for these new shortcuts that you create.

    1. You find all application shortcuts listed under C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\ Application Shortcuts/
    2. To display that folder in File Explorer make sure you enable the display of hidden files and folders with a click on View > Hidden Items.
    3. The folder lists all installed applications.
    4. Create a new folder in there and call it apps.
    5. Move all applications that you don't want to see in the start menu's all apps listings root into that folder.
