If for some reason you haven't tried PowerToys yet, the Windows 11 Start menu is a good excuse.
I don't like the Windows 11 Start menu. I'm not alone either, with both colleagues and readers who aren't fans. But while Microsoft may have taken away features and made the user experience worse, there is at least something that can be done about it.
You could get yourself something like Start11, which will give you a pile of customizations. Or you could do what I've done, and in all honesty, what I've done on Windows 10 for a long time now, and that's use PowerToys.
