      How can I edit Top Apps that appear when search is clicked on?

      At present it shows Kindle and Uninstall Kindle, with others I do not use, one is corrupt with missing drivers.

      What/who decides what is displayed?

      What is the reason for this feature?
      Windows 10 version 1903 build 18362.295 on a 64-bit I7 computer.

      Try right clicking on the one of the top apps to see if the tile can be removed from its place. Look inside the More drop down or the ellipses menu.

      I’m taking a guess, it must be Windows 10 showing suggested applications similar to the ‘try me’ ware they endlessly gift to users inside the start menu.

      Nobody knows how to turn it off, maybe O&O’s Shutup10 program can turn those tiles off.

      On my Top apps it shows those apps I use the most. The list is what I use most. I can’t see any way of changing this so I don’t know why you’re not seeing your most used apps.

      On the start page (I have full screen set), do you have ‘Most used’ set so when you click on all apps, you can see the list? Mine is the same as top apps in search. Not sure if this helps though!
