The latest Windows 11 build 25247 has a controversial feature that has upset a lot of Windows Insiders. The latest Windows 11 build 25247 adds a website recommendation feature to the Start menu, making this dissatisfaction even greater.
Fortunately, as with other experimental features in the development channel, users can remove the website recommendations from the Start menu in Windows 11 build 25247. All that is needed is the Vivetool application and a command that also allows users to change the number of recommended websites (two or one).
How to disable website recommendations in Windows 11 build 25247 (Please note that before enabling the hidden option using the ViveTool application, please back up important data.): 1.
