The Windows 11 Start menu is divided into two sections: “Pinned” and “Recommended.” The “Pinned” section shows the pinned apps, while the “Recommended” section display lists of recently installed apps and recently used files.

Now, Microsoft allows you to group apps in folders. After grouping the apps in a folder, you can add additional apps, remove, or rearrange apps within the apps folders according to your needs. This way, you can easily categorize your apps based on priority.

Starting Windows 11 Build 22579, now Microsoft allows you to rename the folder names in the Start menu. By default, Microsoft name the folder in the Start menu “Folder.” Suppose you have made five folders for your favorite apps; all folder names will be “Folder” in the Start menu. That means you can not quickly identify the apps by reading the folder’s name. So for convenience, Microsoft now allows you to rename the folder name in the Start menu.

At this moment, this feature is only available to computers enrolled in the Microsoft Insider Preview program. Others need to wait for a major update of Windows 11.
