Backup and Restore Pinned Items on Start Menu in Windows 11

The Start menu is comprised of three sections: Pinned, All apps, and Recommended.

The section at the top of the Start menu is called the Pinned section. This section consists of pins arranged in a grid. The items in this section are a subset of all the apps installed on the PC; not all installed apps are included in this section by default.
