    new highlights


    Hello all.

    Does anyone know if there is a switch
    to stop the Windows 10 start menu
    from showing newly installed programs

    like this

    Also, does anyone find that a newly installed listing may be
    blocked from use until a sign out or a restart of explorer?

    thanks

    Hello nt62,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to remove "Recently added" apps from All Apps in the Start menu.

    Thanks ... am aware of that setting.

    It's the actual installation listing >
    example > install a program > the program is listed in the start menu
    the program has a header listed with several sub listings >
    all are listed as NEW and stay until all are clicked

    This seems to be a problem carried over from Windows 8.1

    example: If one installs 7 programs, then as many as 7 plus all sub links are listed as NEW.

    AND, these listings may be blocked > NO effect from clicking until signing out or restarting explorer.

    Was bugged by 10 and server > both using builds 14393 seem buggy.
    Currently running Windows 7 on another device.

    Doesn't that fix only apply to the "recently added" view?

    That's correct. The setting I posted will only affect the "Recent added" section in All Apps.

    The only way that I know of to remove "New" from a listed app is to open the app.
