    How remove photos section from start menu when searching for 'camera'?


    Hi,

    If open the start menu and search for 'camera' , a 'photos' section appears in the start menu with, what seems to be, a random smattering of photo thumbnails. I do not want these to display.

    Is there a way to prevent this? Or at least to point it so it only pulls photos from a certain folder instead of, seemingly, any folder that contains photos?

    :)

    Hi WhoisWe, if you mean, how to add and remove tiles to/from the Start Menu

    Right click any program or file and choose 'Pin To Start'

    To remove any tile from the Start Menu, right click the tile and choose 'Remove from Start

    For apps like Photos, in the search beside the Start Menu, type Photos, right click the result and choose 'Pin to Start'

    You can then drag the tiles around the start menu, to order them in any specific order

    If this is not what you were inquiring about, please provide a bit more detail . . .
