Editing MRU apps?


Recommended Posts

How do I permanently remove an app from the recently used? For example I'm getting things like Windows Explorer (which I use a keyboard shortcut for) and Xbox Game Bar (just because it auto launches with games) cluttering up the menu so the ones I want don't fit. If I remove them they soon come back.

I would also like to know. 

Things I do not need in my list of MRU apps are:

  • Explorer
  • Auto-start apps (tray icons)
  • Apps I open with a desktop icon

I got really used to the behavior of another Start Menu replacer, where the Start Menu would would only show apps I specifically launched using the Start Menu.  I have to keep removing items I don't want to be there every time they randomly come back.  It's not a dealbreaker, StartAllBack is awesome.  I just wish that things I did not open via the Start Menu would stop showing up in the MRU apps list.

Indeed, I have windows explorer (always opened with WIN-E), Xbox gaybar (opens itself with games I believe), and programs I've opened using an icon on the desktop.  The only things in the start menu list should be things I open using the start menu itself.

But yes, without startallback I'd consider Linux.  I mean the default menu with Windows 11 actually has ZERO programs in it.  Do I actually have to add every one by myself?!  I have no idea how to use it.  It seems to start with tonnes of adverts (on a paid for OS!) and some recent documents which consist of installers and things I'll never open again.  Why do MS create something good then remove it again?!  How insane are their designers?!  I couldn't make an OS interface this bad if I was drunk and stoned at the same time.
