    Arranging Items in Quick Access and windows update


    My work comptuer I can move items where I want them with in windows quick access. But my home Computer:


    Arranging Items in Quick Access and windows update [​IMG]

    I can not arrange any of the items in the quick access. I thought that after a update I could arrange them. I am checking windows Update Mini Tool and it seams to show that I have ran all the updates however I do not see a new icon for Microsoft explorer.
    here it shows the updates I have ran I unhid them all and allowed them to run.

    I believe I have ran all the updates available yet I still can not move the items where I need them to be in the Quick Access.
    So maybe its not the windows update that changed my work computers quick access so the items can be arranged. ?

    :)

  2. Quick Access bar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    We would be glad to help you with the issue you are facing today. I understand the difficulty.

    Remove items from Quick access.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps.

    • Right click on the file or folder.
    • Select the option “unpin from the quick access”


    To pin items to an item already on the quick access bar.

    Follow the below steps.

    I would suggest you to create folder in the desktop screen & place all the files or folder which need to pin to the quick access.

    • Open the quick access.
    • Select the Desktop option.
    • Right click on the folder & select the option “pin to quick access”


    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.

  3. Recent items not showing in quick access or start list


    Hi there,

    I've only just upgraded to windows 10, so still getting to grips. I have the recent items option enabled in both the quick access panel and jump lists, but they're appearing in neither. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Many thanks

  4. Arranging Items in Quick Access and windows update

    Quick Access - "Location is not available"

    I solved the problem without following steps 1, 2, and 3. The solution is stupidly simple and it doesn't make any difference as to whether the problem item in the Quick Access list is pinned or unpinned.

    1. Create the folder in the same path where Quick Access reported it to be unlocatable. The folder will be empty.

    2. Delete the folder you just created. The Quick Access item that WAS listed in Quick Access disappears!!

    Note that #2 does not remove or delete the item from Quick Access. It deletes the empty folder you just created *from the machine* (i.e., it goes to the Recycle bin) and as a consequence of the deletion, it disappears from the Quick Access list.
