Feedback on Sysinternals Install from Windows Store/WinGet

I would like to feedback my thoughts on the just released Store/WinGet installation of SysInternals ...

(1) On Windows 11, the installation adds a menu "SysInternals Suite" that has some of the GUI commands available - but it feels to me like this is just adding to the clutter on the Start Menu when users of the tools would typically just use them from the command line.

(2) On Windows 10 it is worse (probably a bug) as the menu is not added as a sub-menu but added to the main menu of items - so you have all these system tools listed in the main all apps list cluttering it up even more ---- another reason that having the option to not have them on the start menu would be helpful.

I could not find any other way to make feedback about this, so hopefully this will reach the necessary people.

Thanks for the feedback. Windows 10 Start does not support grouping apps from MSIX packages.
