    "Most Used" function only shows Apps, not Programs


    Is there a way I can put my most used programs on the left side of the start menu?

    I tried doing it using the Most Used function; and then simply hiding the applications I dont want listed. But this function only lists Microsoft Store apps, and not programs I've installed myself.

    Hello Jaxel,

    "Most used" will show both Windows apps and desktops apps (aka: programs).

    Quick access is used now instead of favorites.

    I'm not talking about Quick access...

    I'm talking about the "Most used" menu. It ONLY shows windows "modern" apps for me; never shows any desktop programs.

    Not sure why they are not showing for you yet, but desktop apps (program) show on mine below.

    None of the applications listed in your Most used menu are applications YOU installed. They are all windows pre-installed.

    No Photoshop, no Notepad++, no WinSCP, no GOOGLE CHROME.

    I was just pointing out that it does have desktop apps in Most used and not just "modern" Windows apps. When the apps you installed will show up is anyone's guess though.

    Hi
    I have a similar issue, where the list of apps under "Most Used" is never updated.

    It looks like it's going to be one of those have to wait and see how long it may take to update situations.

    Interesting, none of my programs (Seamonkey, Everything Search, CCleaner, etc) show up under Most used either and I use them all the time.

    I agree there is a bug of some kind here.
