  1. How do I remove quick access?


    I'm not a fan of quick access/frequent folder/recent files. I liked the windows 8 system. Reason is because I don't want people who use my computer to have quick access to files that are personal or nsfw.

    I don't to use a type of security system because I use my computer often at work and at home so it would waste time. I just want to avoid those moments when people borrow my computer spontaneously and Quick Access is the first thing in the files explorer. I just want to classic file explorer system.

    To help us help you please provide some information;

    Device, make, Model CPU Speed, RAM, Free space on Hard drive, Graphics adapter, Network adapter

    If not on current Insider Build, OS and build

    .

    Right click on the icon and unpin.

    If you are using a pen hold the pen until the popup note comes up then pick uppin from taskbar.

    This may also with touch but my tablet is pen operated or mouse operated.

    You have posted to the Windows 10 Insider forum where we test unreleased versions of Windows 10. You should repost to the public forum of Windows 10, however, not knowing anything about your system you could possibly right click on the icons and select to
    unpin from the taskbar.
