    Adding SharePoint folder to Windows Explorer quick access


    I've done it once but don't remember how I did it! Somehow I have managed to connect a folder in a SharePoint site to my Windows Explorer so that when I'm looking for a file, it shows up in the list just like Quick Access, OneDrive, This PC and Network. Can someone help me?


    Thank you!

    :)

    Quick Access Menu/SharePoint


    From what I've seen online, it's not possible to rename a folder pinned to the Quick Access list without renaming the folder itself. This is posing a challenge for me with respect to setting up SharePoint libraries as "favorites," like I had in Windows 7, because of the way my company set up SharePoint.

    Our IT Department told me to add a shortcut instead of a direct link, I'm not finding any info on how to do that. I tried creating a folder, pinning it, then adding a shortcut within that folder, but it doesn't show a list of files in the library, it's literally a shortcut to the library.

    My questions are:
    1. Has anybody successfully pinned SharePoint libraries to Quick Access and renamed in that list them without renaming them in SharePoint?

    2. If not, is there a workaround?

    Thanks in advance! I'm trying to avoid a list of folders called "Shared."

  3. Quick Access Link to Sharepoint folders

    In File Explorer/Quick Access, I have a link to our Sharepoint folders. If I click on this link I receive a "You might not have permission to use this network resource." If from within the Quick Access pane, I first click on a Recently Used file located
    in that Sharepoint folder and then click on the folder it opens as it should and I can navigate it.

    Is Quick Access unable to apply my credentials as a security feature or is there some setting that I can change to correct this?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Quick Access Crashes Explorer

    Hi Bill,

    Quick Access is a new feature in Windows 10 File Explorer navigation pane which helps users quickly navigate to locations which are frequently used. However, if you're having issues with Quick Access, you can try to disable and enable it. To disable Quick
    Access, follow these steps:

    • Type File Explorer Option in the search box.
    • Click on File Explorer Options.
    • Under General tab, choose This PC in the Open File Explorer to: drop down menu.
    • Uncheck Show recently used files in Quick access and
      Show frequently use folders in Quick access.
    • Click Apply an OK.
    • Restart the computer and re-enable Quick access.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested troubleshooting steps.
