    Two installs, different results


    Hi

    I have two PC's with W10 Pro, fully updated.

    When I click the Start button there is a most used section, on one PC there is a list showing the most recent targets, on the other just the program is shown.

    Why the difference and how do I get the recent targets to show up?

    Thanks

    If the problem is what I think it is, on the upper left corner, when you hit the start button, you will see 3 horizontal lines. Just click on the lines and see what happens.

    When I click on the lines it just covers up the Recently added and Most Used.

    Cheers

    Hi daniellouwrens,
    So you mean you want to remove some recent targets and add your own?

    Thanks

    Hi

    the second picture shows only the programs used and not the targets,

    But clearly there is a way, as shown in the picture and is happening on one of my PC's but not the other.

    I can't tell you why they look different. I can tell you how to see the 'recent' list for each item on the 'most used' list.

    Mine looks like your second screenshot (there's no '>' next to the app's name) but you can right-click on each app to show a 'recent items' list.
