    How to Measure How Many Items on Start Menu in Windows 10

    Items on your Start menu are the total count of shortcuts displayed in All apps and pinned tiles combined.

    All apps in the Start menu displays an alphabetical list of shortcuts to all installed Windows apps (Microsoft Store) and desktop apps on your Windows 10 PC. Some of these shortcuts are grouped into folders with the folder name in the alphabetical list.

    Pinned tiles are the apps, contacts (People app), folders, drives, library, network, etc... that you pinned to Start and have sized, arranged into groups, group names, and used in Live Folders as part of your Start layout.

    By default, the Windows 10 Start Menu only supports showing up to 2048 items. If you have more than 2048 items, some or all items may no longer show.

    This tutorial will show you how to measure how many items you have on your Start menu for your account in Windows 10.
