    Energy viewing device. Quick Access workflow broken need a history


    Quick Access no longer places the most recent added item on the bottom. So I made a folder called zzz000aaa and I put my shortcuts in it. But for some reason it did not show up at the bottom of quick access.

    win 10
    1903
    18362.295

    I wish they would develop a device that could take advantage of the energies that surround all electrical fields and we could use that to navigate our computers I could just fly to the right folder in my mind and I could save the file there. I did approach Microsoft about trying to develop this. I guess they thought I was crazy. But just think if we had a device that showed all the energies between people. When ever there is movement of electricity we have a field of energy around it. Humans muscles are driven by electrical impulses. If only we could see it all. ! Or even prove that it was there. Everyone has heard the term "You could cut it with a knife" when referring to tension in the air. So we do know it exists. We just need to figure out how to make it an interface. So maybe I could get a grant to study this !

  2. Quick Access Not Working

    Hi Dustin,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Follow the below steps to repair the broken database of Quick Access.

    Method 1:

    Before repairing the database, try to disable and then re-enable Quick Access to see if it helps. To disable and re-enable Quick Access, follow the below steps:

    Step 1: To remove frequent folders and recent files list from Quick Access, open File Explorer > click on View tab in Ribbon >
    click on Options > Change folder and search options to open Folder Options.

    Step 2: You’ll have to uncheck the following two check-boxes present under the Privacy section to disable Quick Access:

    • Show recently used files in Quick Access.
    • Show frequently used folders in Quick Access.

    Step 3: Click Apply and Exit. The action will instantly remove these two sections from Quick Access in File Explorer. (To clear your Quick Access history press the ‘Clear’ button against Clear File Explorer History).

    Step 4: Then, check
    the following two check-boxes again to enable Quick Access that you did in
    Step2.

    • Show recently used files in Quick Access.
    • Show frequently used folders in Quick Access.

    Step 5: Restart the PC once and check the issue and if the issue persist, follow the
    Method 2.

    Method 2:

    The Method 2 will repair the broken database of Quick Access.

    Step 1: Open File Explorer and paste this folder path: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations in the address bar and hit Enter.

    Step 2: Once the folder is opened, press ‘Ctrl’ key and the ‘A’ from your keyboard to select all of its contents and delete it.

    Step 3: Do the same for this folder path as well: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations

    Step 4: Restart the PC once and check the issue.

    Hope it helps.

  4. Energy viewing device. Quick Access workflow broken need a history

    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.
