    Start button search results now show context menu items


    If I do a search for a file or program from Start it now shows a second screen with items similar to right clicking on the results.

    Not sure how this got happened. Is there a way to restore it to old?

    Add or Remove Start Context menu items

    Nyima,

    I was not asking about adding and removing regular app items to the start menu, but rather adding or removing items from the Context Menu (Win+X). Specifically, I would like to add the Devices and Printers item to the list.

    Thank you for the response.

    Windows 10 start button context menu

    You can "disable" the start button context menu by deleting its items.

    Go to "C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX"

    You'll find some Folders like "Group1", "Group2", ...

    Move them to another location or delete them

    After restarting at least explorer.exe, the start-button context menu doesn't show anymore
