    File Explorer Quick Access Icons ?


    I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro vers 1909 on a new build. This is my first experience with Win10.

    I'm not sure what icons are supposed to be in Quick Access. But I have 3 yellow folders that correspond to drivers that I installed, in addition to 5 icons which appear to be normal according to several images I've seen while Googling.

    Is it normal for drivers to add icon folders to Quick Access? Two are empty & one lists several graphics files. My thought is to just delete these. But since the "Onboard VGA Driver" folder icon contains files maybe it should be moved to a program folder.

    I've never experienced anything like this when installing Win7 on PCs, IOW driver folders showing up in the Libraries.

    The ASRock mobo drivers came on a disc & I copied them to a USB stick, using another PC, in order to install on the new PC. Could installing from a USB stick have caused this for some reason?

    Should it be safe to delete these rogue entries?

    :)

    Quick Access Crashes Explorer

    Hi Bill,

    Quick Access is a new feature in Windows 10 File Explorer navigation pane which helps users quickly navigate to locations which are frequently used. However, if you're having issues with Quick Access, you can try to disable and enable it. To disable Quick
    Access, follow these steps:

    • Type File Explorer Option in the search box.
    • Click on File Explorer Options.
    • Under General tab, choose This PC in the Open File Explorer to: drop down menu.
    • Uncheck Show recently used files in Quick access and
      Show frequently use folders in Quick access.
    • Click Apply an OK.
    • Restart the computer and re-enable Quick access.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested troubleshooting steps.

  3. File Explorer/Quick Access

    I recently started having a problem with File Explorer and Quick Access. When I start my computer, all works fine but then gradually the files as listed in File Explorer and Quick Access start to disappear and soon there are none present. I need to
    restart and again they are there but also again they start to disappear. Has anyone else had this problem and any suggestion to correct? Thanks/

    Quick Access Recent Files icons in explorer are blank - no icon



    File Explorer Quick Access Icons ? [​IMG]


    Hi, you can see the two white Recent files entries with no icons. I seem to have no other issue with icons.

    I've tried deleting and rebuilding the icon cache, and clearing explorer history.
    The problem remains having done the anniversary upgrade.

    This used to be fine, and I don't know when it changed, unfortunately, so suggesting system restore or restoring disk images (which I have) may not be the best way forward.

    Any suggestions please? Thanks!
