Get Classic Start Menu in Windows 11

There is no need for an introduction to Windows 11 or its features, as you might already have tested its leaked version. If you have noticed, the start menu in Windows 11 is a bit different from the start menu in Windows 10.

As you can see from the image below, all the pinned items are displayed at the top, with all the other apps accessible from an “All Apps” button. In the bottom of the menu, you will see the recommended and recent items. Whereas in Windows 10, all the recent apps are listed on the left and pinned apps are listed and arranged as blocks on the right of the menu.
