    Duplicated Quick Access Folders


    Hi,
    let's get down to business. This all started when something happened to my registry and I was unable to create new folders. I surfed around the internet until found a forum post to fix it which led to this link
    [ New Context Menu - Remove Restore Default Menu Items - Windows 7 Help Forums ]

    I followed all the steps to fix my issue and it work, but then it created another problem. On my "Quick Access" tab in my File Explorer, it duplicated all the folders. At first I thought it would simply correct itself if I restarted my laptop, but it made it worse. Now the duplicated folders have no names and I can not delete them because an error pops up saying that the folder does not exist. Please Help! (btw i tried unpinning and it did not work)

    Duplicate file deletion

    How do you know you have duplicates? Where are you seeing them?

    If you are seeing them in the Documents folder, and also in Quick Access, they are *not* duplicates. What you see in Quick Access are just pointers to the files in Documents.

    duplicate folders

    If you are talking about those folders in Quick Access and This PC they are indeed duplicates. They get their information from (CDuplicated Quick Access Folders :) Win 10, Users, (your user name) and the folders.
