How to remove recently added apps from the Windows 10 Start menu

By default, when you open Windows 10’s Start menu, you’ll see your recently added apps at the top of the apps list. This section shows some of the applications you have installed most recently. If you don’t want to see those apps, you can easily change them. Here’s how to do it.

Below is the “Recently Added” section view at the top of the Start menu apps list. It’s a small area that shows the names and icons of recently installed apps.

The next time you open the Start menu, the recently added apps at the top will disappear. You will no longer be prompted for all the apps you recently installed, but of course, you can find them either in the All Apps list or using the search box in the Start menu.

Hope you are succesful.
