Windows 10 remove web stuff from start menu

The start menu of Windows 10 displays some stuff from the internet by default. If you find this annoying like me then feel free to follow this guide to fix that.

  1. Open the registry editor (regedit.exe).
  2. Navigate to the following path in the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Explorer -> Advanced.
  3. There create a new DWORD (32bit) value that is named EnableXamlStartMenu.
  4. Now you can either restart the explorer task or reboot your machine.

If you open the start menu now you should notice that you can:

  • resize it
  • remove entries by right clicking on them, yay! :-)
