  1. Can I display files in a folder organized by groups, just like in quick acess?


    I have a tv show with all episodes in a folder and I was wondering if I could put each season in a group like for example in quick acess ("Frequent Folders" and "Recent Files") but with "Season 1", "Season 2",..., etc.

    Here's a screenshot, so you can see what I mean: https://prnt.sc/1ae3fmh

    So this way, it would be way more organized and better to navigate. This would also be very useful to organize other folders.

    Is it possible to do?

    I know I could just put each season in a separate folder but I'm curious about this feature.

  2. Windows 10 Quick Access: Folder & File Grouping (QA grouped by type, folder or file) ceased working

    Actually, apologies, I spoke too soon, I rebooted (still had same issue which emerged after a Win10 crash this AM for unknown reason) then executed your suggestion (which to be clear for others was the following steps):

    • Opened "File Explorer"
    • Went to View
    • Selected Options from toolbar
    • Selected Change Folder and Search Options - this opened Folder Options box
    • Selected View for View tab
    • in Folder Views box clicked on Reset Folder
    And voila, worked. Earlier try not sure why it did not work but after reboot (and with continued Quick Access issue) this worked.

  3. Windows 10 Quick Access: Folder & File Grouping (QA grouped by type, folder or file) ceased working

    Almost identical to this Question that never received a response (Windows 10 Quick Access - Folders grouped separately sometimes), I have lost the grouping of Files,
    folders (basically types) in Quick Access.

    As illustrated in the photos in that thread, I used to (generally although sometimes randomly not) have Quick Access showing with separate Folder and File categories (as in the 2nd photo) but this suddenly today disappeared and it seems impossible to restore.

    Now an undifferentiated list (as in the first photo) is the only thing that shows, regardless of view options, etc.

    Can I display files in a folder organized by groups, just like in quick acess?

    Windows 10 Quick Access - Folders grouped separately sometimes

    In Windows 10, Quick Access is really great. I like the fluidity of it. Here's my question: sometimes (most of the time for me) folders are integrated into the list of recent files (20 recent files/folders), and sometimes folders are grouped separately (8
    recent folders, then 20 recent files). I can actually click on several folders and convince W10 to do the separate grouping. I prefer the separate grouping, but when I am mainly working in files, they go away and show files and folders together. Is there a
    way to default to show the folders grouped separately from the files. I'll try to post screen caps if that helps. Thanks!
