    'Show most used apps' toggle in Settings is greyed out


    I'm not sure what happened. I've always left this setting on. Just recently I noticed my 'most used' programs in the Start Menu was no longer showing. I went into the settings and saw that the toggle was greyed out.

    Any idea how to get the toggle back? Beforehand, I think I was going through the settings in Cortana trying to turn everything off.

    Turning this on also re-enabled the suggestion history in the "Run" command. Thanks .
