How to Disable Recommended Websites on Start Menu in Windows 11


Windows 11 includes a new Start menu that ditches live tiles in favor of traditional icons and introduces a minimalist design. One of the main sections is the Recommended section, which replaces the timeline and has suggestions for including recently opened files and installed apps. In this article, we will try to teach you how to disable recommended websites in the Start menu in Windows 11.

While the ability to reopen recent documents and files can be a useful feature, it’s not for everyone. If that’s the case, it’s not possible to remove the Recommended section from the Start menu, but Windows 11’s Settings app lets you hide any items you don’t want in the list, which is equivalent to disabling the feature that comes next. Below are the steps on how to turn off website recommendations in the Windows Start menu.
