How to Show More Apps on Windows 11 Start Menu?

On Windows 11, there has been a lot of changes. Start Menu is one of them. Earlier it was in the left corner of the taskbar. Now all the icons have been shifted to the middle of the taskbar.

When you open Start Menu, it is opened in the middle of the desktop. By default there are very few apps visible in the Start Menu. But you can add many more apps easily.

On top of Start Menu there is a Search bar, then Pinned apps and after that Recommended apps.

Initially there are three rows in Pinned apps and Single row in Recommended apps which are recently added.

You can not add any row directly to Pinned and Recommended apps. Neither one can delete any rows. But in the new update  of Windows 11 Build 22509 (Currently available to Windows insiders only), there is option to add fourth row and more apps to Pinned aps.

Microsoft WIndows allows you to configure the Start menu to add rows of apps in the Pinned section and Recommended section of Start menu.
