    How to Backup or Restore Explorer navigation pane Quick Access?


    Hi, there,
    This is my first topic as I am new here.

    I registered in the forum to ask for help from you, as you can see that he has extensive experience in Windows. I tried to solve my problem by searching in google and in this same forum but I didn't find any solution because they all focus on something different from mine.

    The problem is that I want to see the Quick Access of Windows in the navigation pane of the browser as in the following image.

    https://prnt.sc/k3zhae

    As you can see it is not available, I want to restore it and I can't find any option for it.

    Could you help me with this?
    Thank you

    :)

    Hi try this from the excellent Tutorials section -- do have a look.
    File Explorer Quick Access Toolbar - Backup and Restore in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Further:
    You can use Win 10 as a desktop PC much like Win 7. The control panel remains, but is slowly migrating to Settings, and there are features like the Action Centre which are obviously different.

    You can avoid:
    - the start menu - use Classic Shell (free) and you'll be much happier. (Still lets you use the Win 10 start menu)
    - universal apps (they are not exe's- different
    - Cortana

    It's really not worth trying to uninstall stuff you don't use.

    Appearance: this is what I've done. There is far less flexibility with Win 10, but see the Customisation section to see some things others have done.

    I'm reluctantly upgrading to W10 as my new laptop isn't supported by W7. My goal is to get W10 to work as similar as possible to W7.

    Anyway, one of the things I'm finding really awkward is the new "Quick Access" links in Explorer's navigation pane, which replaces the old Links or Favorites.

    With Favorites:

    • I could backup my links using a script.
    • I was able to change the location of the Favorites folder using a registry hack, which was also very useful.
    • I was able to rename Favorites while keeping the target folder name unchanged, which is a very real and typical scenario
    • Ability to set custom icons
    • Relied on the familiar and simple mechanism of Explorer shortcuts, which allows easy and convenient manipulation

    None of this is now possible with the new and super-duper Quick Access that Microsoft spent time and money to re-invent. Why they had to go out of their way to "fix" something that worked remarkably well is beyond me.*Sad

    Long story short, I need a way to back up Quick Access links, but I can't find them anywhere on my c:\ drive. Favorites used to be stored in %UserProfile%\Links, where the heck are Quick Access links stored?

    Cheers

    Remove Quick access from Navigation Pane in Windows 10  


    I followed the steps in the this tutorial and was able to remove the Quick Access feature from the navigation pane of Windows Explorer - thanks for this.

    However, the Quick Access feature can still be seen in the navigation pane of the save dialog explorer when trying to save a file from a web browser, for example. Do you have any tips on how to remove the Quick Access feature from this location as well?
