    How Do I Stop Quick Access From Automatically Adding Links?


    In Windows/Files Explorer the Quick Access menu, which I have set to open when WE is started, is placing links to folders automatically that I have recently been accessed. I don't want it to do this. I want it organized just like you don't have a link to every website you go to listed in your favorites bar in your browser. How do I stop it from doing this?

    :)

  3. Quick access

    I have just discovered that every folder I open pins itself to Quick Access. Because I was transferring iTunes files the other day, there are now hundreds of folders pinned to Quick Access. How do I get rid of them in bulk? I know how to do it one by
    one but that is going to take me days. There doesn't seem to be a way to scroll down while highlighting the lot. More to the point, how do I tell Quick Access to stop automatically pinning every folder I open?

    How Do I Stop Quick Access From Automatically Adding Links?

    The following tutorial will show you how to remove recently used files and frequently used folders in Quick Access:

    Quick access - Add or Remove Recent files in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    This is what it will then look like.

    The next tutorial will also show you how to remove the Quick Access entry all together if you wanted to, but I find just doing the above is sufficient, as I don't really notice it being there anymore without entries in it:
