Customizing the Sharepoint home page showing frequent sites and suggested sites
Customizing the Sharepoint home page showing frequent sites and suggested sites, since there are confidential sites that should not be displayed to users of the system

Same experience with DuncanVXD
As DuncanVXD says,
=> Being able to edit this page would allow navigation clarity, I have replaced a root site and can't get rid of the old tile so it confuses users when trying to find the new site.

Faced that issue today with one of our customers. The "Teams-SharePoint" was renamed and the change is already shown in the "Groups" - but on the "SharePoint Home Page" the "frequent SharePoint SIte name" was not updated. The user did the change 1 week ago.. it leads to many confusions. Please make it possible to update/delete frequent sites.
Please add the ability to customize this page or designate a site as the default.
Actually, it would be ideal to miss out the SharePoint landing page altogether for our purposes, it adds nothing but another click and confusion, an off switch would be perfect!

What good is a home page if it is useless? Sharepoint is bad enough without being purposefully oblivious as to what a home page constitutes.
We migrated to an updated (modern) SharePoint site. But in the "Frequent Sites" used list the old site tiles still appear. And therefore also in Word, Excel.. Having an option to manual clear this list would be helpfull!

There are work-arounds to create shortcuts to your own intranet homepage but there are many users that still get stumped by this. Please fix :)

it's unacceptable not to be able to edit this , it's such a basic request i can't imagine it's still impossible !!!

With the ever improving MS Teams the new home for user teams, surely the "sites" feature of SharePoint is null and void and should be repurposed to it's original purpose of being a shared resources repository for users?!

SharePoint is just getting clunkier and clunkier and difficult to navigate. Very frustrating. The NEW experience is just way over the top and not useful as a file and folder program.
EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT NEEDED: Organization of tiles on "Site Home"
Ability to at least alphabetize the list of sites (that look like tiles) would cut down on the time spent trying to find sites if you have many! Also, the tiles under "Following" move around so you can't even have a muscle memory to an approx. location.
PLEASE fix this or return to the old way which was just an alphabetical list. SUCH a waste of time hunting around. Using search feature is just cumbersome and another time waster, especially if you guess/spell the name wrong.
Thank you kindly.
Was there an update that broke Frequent Sites? I had an actual useable front page once and now I have to keep hunting for the sites I work in while two-year-old project sites get prioritised. Is there a way to roll back this "feature"?
The SharePoint Start (Welcome) Page has never been brilliant, but over the last couple of months it is only showing sites that are rarely visited in the "Frequent" section and all the "Followed" sites are missed off completely, with some coming up as "Suggested sites". It doesn't matter how many times you visit a site, or whether you "follow" it, it refuses to show up in either "Followed" or "Frequent.....how on earth can we fix this?

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE....
...fix this stupid issues with SharePoint so we can arrange our SharePoint homepage how we like it. My most frequent site, which I administrate, has been moved down to "Suggested Sites". How stupid is that?

The SharePoint frequent sites page is an unmitigated nightmare!! There are "frequent" sites showing that have actually been deleted weeks prior, yet ones that I use all day every day take an age to display! There needs to be a way or organising this and being able to Edit
James Voss commented
Any updates on this "feature" being resolved? Not being able to modify this site, or change where the app launcher takes you to begin with, is a huge issue.
Frequent sites should be frequent to my specific user, not based on the rest of the users with access to the parent sharepoint site.

How is this still not fixed?!
David Richards commented
all the below comments and i see no answer on how to remove a deleted site from the home page favorites or frequent site?!? Has anyone figured this out?
