One of the most drastic and controversial changes in Windows 11 is the new Start menu and the centered taskbar. There are no more Live Tiles, and the Start menu mostly resembles a regular app launcher with a dedicated section where the system tries to predict what files and apps you might want to open. While the idea may sound okay on the paper, many users agree that Microsoft should provide an option to disable the "Recommended" section in the Start menu. The good news is that Microsoft may have actually listened to your feedback, and now it prepares to let you get rid of the "Recommended" section.
