Windows 10 Most Used Apps List

The Most Used Apps list keeps on resetting on my system. I am not manually adding or deleting any of those apps but it still keeps on happening. This is quite annoying and was not the case when I switched to Windows 10.

I did run the Windows Apps Troubleshooter and waited for about four days. It did not work. It got reset this morning.

At this point, it will be best to know how your Start Settings was set up. Kindly follow the steps below and see if it was setup as shown on the screenshot:

  • Press Windows key and select Settings.
  • Click on Personalization.
  • Select Start on the left panel.
  • Enable Show most used apps.

Most used apps should be On.

If this is how it was setup and the issue persist after restarting your device, have you tried another user account? How did it go? This is for us to know if your operating system is causing the issue.

We also would like to know which Windows operating system we are working on. To know these details, kindly type about in the Search box on your taskbar, and then select About your PC. Under Windows specification, find out which version, built and edition of Windows that your PC is running.

The issue persists even after changing user accounts. 'Show Most Used Apps' has always been ON on my PC and it is currently ON. This never used to be a problem previously. It started after one of the updates were installed. (Don't know which one)

We appreciate the information about the recent update installation. This erratic behavior of Windows 10 may have risen from the recent update itself. During updates, issues may arise from software changes, outdated drivers, conflicting programs and sometimes update components that was not successfully completed. We recommend that you do an in-place upgrade as it may resolve the issue.

To do an in-place upgrade, here are some of the things you may need: 

  • Another PC with a reliable internet connection. This will be a 4 GB download. The download time will depend on your internet connection. 
  • A USB flash drive or DVD. A blank USB flash drive or DVD with at least 5 GB of available drive space. Using a DVD requires a DVD burner and software on the PC you’re using to create the media and a DVD player on the PC where you want to install Windows. 

If you have the above needs, kindly check How to perform an In-place Upgrade with Windows 10 Step-by-Step Guide. Kindly follow the steps provided by Paul Sey in order.

Kindly post back and share with us the result.
