    How to stop Start menu clutter


    I have searched the tutorials but cannot find how to stop the app clutter in the Start menu.
    I unpin them from the start menu and reduce the size of the menu itself but each time I reboot or start up the clutter is back as I don't want any of that to be visible because I do not use things like Skype Facebook MSN streams etc etc because if I want one of those apps I can get them from the app menu which in my mind is full of some really useless things like Crushed Candy Soda or whatever it is called .


    Any advice or solution please before I just install make the machine open in Classic Shell mode.

    :)

    Start menu stopped working in Windows 10

    The Start Menu on my copy of Windows 10 stopped working for no apparent reason. I have tried the suggested four steps above. The first three ran. The final one failed to run due to an error. The process did not fix the start menu. My Windows 10 computer
    is disabled and unusable. I need a solution ASAP.

  3. Windows 10 Start menu is empty

    Hi. Steps 1 and 2 didn't do much but step 3 has restored what looks like the list of original Microsoft apps but no sign of any of the many apps I have installed. And there are no tiles in the start menu. Any suggestions please?
