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.
