How to Show More Apps on Windows 11 Start Menu?

Posted by

In Windows 11, Microsoft introduced an all-new Start menu. The new Start menu opens at the center of the screen, while the earlier version of Windows opens the Start menu on the left side. The Windows 11 Start menu displays a search bar at the top. Below that, you can find Pinned apps and, after that, the Recommended section.

By default, the Pinned section displays pinned apps in three rows. Similarly, you can see three rows in the Recommended section that shows newly installed apps and recently opened files. There is no option to add more apps in the Pinned section and reduce in the Recommended area. However, things have been changed with Windows 11 build 22509 (currently available to Windows Insiders only). That means you can add a fourth row or more apps in the Pinned apps section.

Now, Microsoft allows you to configure the Start menu to show an extra row of apps in the Pinned section or an extra row of files in the Recommended section.
