How can I show a list of Recently Used APPs in Win10 Start Menu? Note that I want APPs, NOT 'Recent Items' (which shows only files/folders), nor 'Most Used' apps. Thanks.

  • Refer to this post: Windows 10: Recently used apps in start menu? – yilia zhao Dec 7 at 1:37
  • Thanks, but I looked at those answers before posting my question and none of them work: they either result in 'most USED apps' (not 'most RECENTLY used apps'), or 'most recent files/folders' (not apps). – Bi3ll Dec 7 at 23:14
  • Is in Settings > Peronalization > Start the item Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar is enabled? – harrymc Dec 8 at 19:02
  • Thanks but this shows only recently opened folders/files, not recently used apps. – Bi3ll Dec 8 at 19:53
  • Then the answer is negative - not possible. A Start Menu replacement might do better. Please start a comment with name of the person you are addressing like @harrymc:. – harrymc Dec 8 at 21:08
