I am missing the Windows 7 Start menu feature in Windows 10 that shows application-specific last used items for every pinned application in the Start menu and where you can pin some frequently used items. For example frequently used places visited using RDP:

Start Menu

It is NOT globally last used documents, it is application-specific last used documents, URL, places, addresses, etc.

It used to work this way:

Please right-click Remote Desktop Connection icon in Accessories of Start Menu, and then choose pin to Start Menu. All the connections you recently used will be listed in it and you can also pin them in the list.

Is there a way in Windows 10 to achieve that without installing any third-party software?

  • At this time, if you right-click an application within the Start Menu or All Apps list, it will show you a list of Recent items that also has a Pin to this list option. – Run5k May 2 '18 at 12:55
  • @Run5k oh, did not see the list because have not launched any session yet, either put this as an aswer or I shall delete the question. – Vojtěch Dohnal May 3 '18 at 6:03

Although many things have changed within the user interface as it evolved between Windows 7 and Windows 10, this one essentially stayed the same.

If you right-click an application within the Windows 10 Start Menu or All Apps list, it will show you a list of Recent items that also has a Pin to this list option:
