    How to get an item added to Most Used on Start Menu


    I have opened the Paint program add least 100 times in the past two days. It has never been added to the Most Used area of the Start Menu. What do I need to do to get Paint to show in Most Used on the Start Menu?

    :)

    How to re-add ''app'' on Most Used List on start menu

    Yes, I'm aware of that. It's turned on. How to get an item added to Most Used on Start Menu :)

    Again, it seems if you tell it to disregard a program in that list it will.forever; no changing your mind later.

    Is there an employee directory of Microsoft Engineers that will show who designed this feature?

    How to re-add ''app'' on Most Used List on start menu

    Hi,

    There several options for you to choose from:

    When you go into the ALL APPS list to access an App, if you Right click
    on it you will get these options:

    • Pin to Start - which pins it as a tile
    • More > Pin to the Taskbar - which pins it as a icon

    Also, if you pin it to the Start Menu, you then can drag and drop the tile on to the desktop as a shortcut.

    Kind regards,

    Mark
