Hide most used apps in Windows 10 Start Menu

The Start menu in Windows 10 is an essential part of the system since from there we access all the applications and tools integrated into the system or that we have downloaded. For this reason the operating system itself adjusts certain settings for the Start menu in order to make it dynamic, one of them is to dedicate a section for the applications and programs that we use most daily in Windows 10, by clicking on the Start menu we can see a section called "The most used":

Thanks to having this section of the most used applications we can quickly access them without having to search for them. This saves us time, but it also reveals what we use the most and we don't always want to show that in the Start Menu . If, due to privacy issues, we do not want these applications to be visible in Windows 10, we can hide them in a very simple way..
