    Preventing Recently Added apps on Start Menu from Auto Deletion


    Recently Added apps on Start Menu in Windows 10 seems to automatically clear so it can give room for newcomers after some period. But I want the items in the list to never get auto-deleted so when I expand the list, I can scroll through all of my installed apps over time. How can I accomplish this?

    Hi, the start menu is relatively inflexible, so you may not be able to use it to get a simple list of all apps and program exe's or shortcuts to them.

    You will know you can search for a program quite quickly.

    Here is a much less familiar way to get a list, although the list format and content may not be quite what you hope for.

    The best way to view all installed apps in Windows 10

    Wouldn’t it be great if it was possible to add all installed programs and apps to a single folder and launch apps/programs from there? Luckily, in Windows 10, there is an option to view all installed apps from one place and you can launch apps from there.
    Step 1: Open Run command box. To do this, simultaneously press Windows logo and R keys on the keyboard.
    Step 2: Type the following command in the box and then press Enter key to open Applications folder which displays all installed apps as well as classic desktop programs.
    Shell:AppsFolder
    From here, you can open apps/programs, pin or unpin them to Start/taskbar, or even initiate Uninstall process.
    Tip: You don’t need to enter the above command each time to view all installed apps. The Run command will save this command and displays the last used command when you open it. You just need to open Run command box and press Enter key.

    Of course there are other ways of listing installed programs, but I guess you want a list from which you can launch a program.

    @dalchina, How can I view the installed programs in installed date order.
