    Can no longer drag files/folders into a network folder pinned in Quick Access panel


    As of around last week, I can no longer drag files/folders into a network folder pinned in Quick Access panel.It was working fine before, then stopped. The destination network folder is located on Win XP machine.I can still see it and interact with it in any other way just fine, only drag-and-drop to Quick Access is broken.I tested this on 3 different Win 10 machines - its broken on all of them.Also tested a machine with Win 7 - it has no such problem, dragging files/folders into the same folder in Favourites panel in File Explorer works just fine.How to fix this?System is Win 10 Pro, OS Build

    :)

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure

    Can no longer drag files/folders into a network folder pinned in Quick Access panel

    getting location error when accessing to a pinned network folder in quick access

    Hi Anderson,

    Initially it works but when I start up my computer after shutdown I can no longer use the pinned network folder in the quick access tab. I can access the network folder in my "this pc" explorer but when I open an application, export or saved a file to the
    pinned network folder in the quick access tab will get an error though I have a work-around, instead of the mapped drive location I used the actual folder location in the server. For example, I mapped the network folder (z:\\testfolder) into my pc as z drive
    and pinned the "test" folder in to quick access (z:\\testfolder\test) then I want to export or save my file from this application (for example, excel) it doesn't work after shutdown but when i removed the pinned folder (mapped) in the quick access and use
    the actual location (domain\testfolder\test) of the folder in the server and pinned in the quick access it works. This is my work-around only, I want to resolve this permanently. If you have any resolution, please share with me. Thank you.
