Can I NOT clear "Most Used" in Win10 Start Menu?

Erik Harris

Recommended Posts

I like the "Most Used" list of apps in my Windows 10 Start menu.  I've disabled all of the "Windows Explorer," "System," and "Advanced" options within CCleaner that looked like they MIGHT be related to the Most Used list (e.g. Recent Documents, Run, Menu Order Cache, etc), but no matter what, when I run CCleaner, my list of most used apps resets itself.

I like CCleaner, but I'd like to keep that list most of the time.  Is there any way to do it with CCleaner?

Hi! I know it's been 3 years since your question but I think I found the fix. I just disabled System > Start Menu Shortcuts and  Advanced > User Assist History, and my Most Used Apps are still there after cleanup. I don't know why it works but it does, hope it helps!

I'm not sure why that old post fell throught the cracks and didn't get an answer?
Something EriK didn't mention in that old post was 'Other Explorer Mru's, and 'Taskbar Jump lists'.

See this for more about Custom Clean's  settings for clearing Windows Explorer:

If you could give more details of where you want to see recent files then we should be able to point to which particular Custom Clean setting removes them from there.

Note that if you Use Health Check it uses it's own rules that you can't change, the options ONLY apply to Custom Clean.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
