Windows 10: Change how many apps appear as MOST USED in Start

    Change how many apps appear as MOST USED in Start


    I've searched the Win10 forum, but haven't found whether it is possible to change the amount of apps that appear in the MOST USED apps in Start.

    For instance, currently, my MOST USED apps show 6 apps. I would like to change it to 10.

    I have the RECENTLY ADDED apps option turned off, so there should be plenty of room to show 10 MOST USED apps.

    I believe previous versions of Windows allowed this choice.

    If you want to add a new app to "Most used' then find/create a shortcut for this app and drag it to the 'Start' icon at the left bottom corner.

    It will be added to the left column 'Most used'.

    Thank you for the response, boyboyds, but what I want to do is increase the number of apps which show in the MOST USED column. Currently the MOST USED apps allows only 6 to show. I would like to increase that number to 10.

    Move your cursor to the top edge of the Start screen, left click (you will see a small arrow) and drag it up. It will expand the Start screen vertically and allow you to add more apps to the left side.

    ? "Most used" are filled in automatically by the system according to which apps are...most used.

    I haven't seen any workaround to increase that beyond 6 regardless of space.

    I gave up and installed Classic Shell. Start Menu is very important and in W-10 native Start Menu is not good. I did tried though.
