The Start menu is comprised of three sections: Pinned, All apps, and Recommended.

The Start menu contains shortcuts of all your apps, settings, and files.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, you can now customize your pinned apps on the Start menu by organizing them into folders. You can add more apps to a folder, rearrange apps within a folder, and remove apps from a folder.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22579, you can now name your folders of apps in Start.

This tutorial will show you how to change the name of folders of apps on the Start menu for your account in Windows 11.


EXAMPLE: Change name of folder of apps on Start menu

That's it,
