    How to change the default Quick Access Directories?


    When you delete the files inside %AppData%\Microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations and %AppData%\Microsoft\windows\recent\customdestinations directories, Windows 10 automatically recreates the default Quick Access directories (Documents, Pictures, etc.) Is there a way to change what is being "recreated"?

    :)

    Hi Ramesh,

    Thanks for your response and sorry for my late reply.

    I have found your suggestions, made the change, by enabling Quick Access

    however it is not holding the change.. therefore Quick Access still not working.

    In the same Options, it gives me the option to Restore Default. I tried that as well, but it is not enabling Quick Access either.

    I need some more help to fix this problem.
