The "most used applications" list in Start11 1.25 is more or less useless (as in the previous version).
If I select to show the most used applications, the list is mainly filled with auto-started things. On the top of the list, I often have "Xbox Game Bar," which I have never used and probably never will use. Most other applications in the list are things that I use but that are auto-started, so I don't need them in the menu. If I search for an application and start it, it will NOT be listed in the most used list.
The end result is that the "most used" list is filled with applications I never start myself, while the applications I DO start are missing.
Windows 11 Pro, version 21H2 build 22000.832
Start11 version 1.25
You can remove items from the list by right clicking on it and selecting "Remove from list"
The order is determined by frequency of use, interactions etc.
It means that opening an app doesn't put it instantly to the top of the list. As you use any app it gets promoted further and further up the list.
Also anything pinned to the taskbar will be ignored.
