    "Show most used apps" is disabled and it affects the "Run" history?


    The Run history is not retained a search led me to a post which informed that "Show most used apps" in Settings\Personalization should be enabled. In my case, this slider is greyed out and is not accessible.

  2. How to enable "Show most used apps"?

    Hello Douglas,

    Most used from the Start menu and the Run history can be enabled through Settings. To turn them on, the following are the steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Personalization.
    • From the Start tab, turn Show most used apps on.
    • Turn Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar on.

    Should you require further assistance, just let us know.
