Speaking at the WinHEC conference last week, Microsoft revealed it's going to double the amount of promoted apps in Windows 10's Start Menu with the upcoming Anniversary Update. At present the OS features five promoted apps in the Start Menu but July's big update will double the number to ten.
Some promoted apps are pre-installed, but Microsoft notes that they can be fully uninstalled and any promoted items removed from the Start menu. Microsoft has not revealed exactly why the number of promoted apps is doubling, but it's likely that the company is using it as another method to attract developers to its Windows Store.
