    Interesting, I'm using Win10 Version 1511 Build 10586.494 and if I Pin to Start my Excel immediately comes off the Most Used list to show up in the Tiles. If I then Unpin from Start [Tiles] it immediately shows up again on the Most Used. The exact same thing happens with Word. And it works the same with WordPerfect X7. Guess one has to make a choice of how/where to display the shortcuts.
    I could kiss you right now. Well, maybe not since I don't know anything about you.

    I guess I had manually pinned Excel to the Start area which removed it from the Most Used area. I just unpinned it from Start which put it back in Most Used. Why the heck those two areas are mutually exclusive makes no sense to me but that's Microsoft for you.

    Thanks!

    Same thought.

    It could be Microsoft is trying to reduce things on the Start menu to lessen redundancy which in turn helps performance of the computer, albeit maybe in small ways.

    sideNote: I booted up Win10, went to Start, right clicked on cCleaner (known to have a jumplist) and ... and
    the jumplist is available from the tile on Start.
