How to hide “Most used” apps in the Start menu of Windows 10


The Start menu in Windows 10 offers an array of options and a list of apps. The menu allows you to open Settings quickly, take a look at your “Most used” apps, and of course, the Power option to restart or shut down your PC altogether.


Not every time you want people around you to be able to see your most-used apps. This can be due to the looming privacy concerns, or it can only be a personal choice. Windows 10 lets you disable the “Most used” apps subsection from the Start menu.

Follow these simple steps to hide “Most used” apps from Start menu.

  1. Find the cogwheel or open Settings app using Windows Key + I shortcut

    Open the Settings, press “Win + I,” or find the cogwheel icon in the Start menu.Screenshot of Cogwheel icon of Settings in Windows 10

    Moreover, if you only want to remove a specific app from the “Most used apps” section in the Start menu, instead of disabling this section altogether.

  6. Right click the particular app and hover “More”

    If you want to specifically hide an app from a section of “Most Used App” in the Start menu, you need to right-click on the app and then click on “More.” Screenshot of Removing an app from Most Used App in Start menu
