    Remove Start Menu "New" messages?


    Is there a way to prevent Windows 10 from showing the message "New" next to every single thing I install and keeping it there until I finally cave in and open it? This utterly pointless niggle is triggering my OCD like crazy!

    No one? This is really getting on my nerves... To clarify, I'm not talking about the bright highlight which can be disabled in Settings, but just the word "New" which is equally annoying, but for some reason can not be turned off in the same way...

    I imagine there must be a registry hack but beside that, no.

    They don't disappear after a period of time either, I set the date a few years ahead and they're still there.

    You'll have to give in to your OCD and click them all.

    The way I got rid of them was go through the all apps page and right click on each one, it doesn't open them just removes the 'new' so a bit quicker than opening them

    Yeah... That works but... Y'know there's just gonna be more down the line. It's silly, it turns the start menu into another email inbox or facebook notification type thing, just another bit of life clutter to try and keep from getting out of control. :/
