    question about "all apps" list in start menu

    When programs appear in the all apps list of the start menu I usually click don't show this in the list option, well now none of the apps are ever showing there, imagine that lol, is there anyway to get them to start showing again?

    Your 'All apps' list is empty yeah?

    I have never seen a 'don't show this' option in the 'All apps' list within the 'Start Menu'

    Please could you post a screenshot, demonstrating this function, just in case this is something lost in translation

    Are you talking about the 'All Apps' list or the 'Most Used' list?

    That doesn't say how I can add individual apps to the "most used list" after I have selected them to not show.

    Well that must be because it's not there!! oops

    So instead I thought I would try an experiment and see if the "Most used" list can be reset to default. I reasoned that this may be done by disabling then re-enabling the "Most used" list. So I gave it a try. And it worked.

    Settings ► Personalisation ► Start ► Show most used apps

    Just toggle it off and then on again! And it resets the list back to default! Then once you've used an app 4 or 5 times it'll appear on the list!
