    Adding recent items to start menu


    Hi,

    Does anyone know where I can find the settings for the Start menu of Windows X? I forgot where it is. I managed to put a link of the download folder in the start menu. Forgot how I did that in the first place.

    Thanks.

    :)

    The most used shows 6 applications that I have NEVER used.

    Original Title: Start Menu Nonesense

    In Windows 10, the start menu has most used, and recently added.

    The most used shows 6 applications that I have NEVER used, and none of those I have.

    The recently added - which has enough space for 20 items, shows ONLY the last one installed program

    This used to work very nicely in Win7, looks to be complete nonsense in Win 10.

    Add 'Quick Access' (Recent Items) to Start Menu

    Microsoft:

    Please bring back the ability to have the Quick Access or Recent Items list show up in the Start Menu. It is nice to have it in Files Explorer, but Files Explorer has to be closed when you are done. Having it as a menu that automatically closes is nicer.

    Thanks.
