    How to recursively exclude folder(and all its files) from Quick Access


    Hi,

    Is it possible to exclude certain folders recursively (including all its files and subfolders) from Quick Access? I can remove them individually and they'll stay removed, but I'd like to be able to do it recursively.

    Thanks.

    :)

    There would have to be some sort of exclusion marker, option in Properties or an exclusion list I suppose- and there isn't as far as I know- sorry.

    You can exclude files by type. If the EditFlags value for a ProgID includes the FTA_NoRecentDocs flag:
    [table][tr][td]FTA_NoRecentDocs[/td] [td]0x00100000[/td] [td]Don't add members of this file class to the Recent Documents folder.[/td] [/tr] [/table]

    For example, this prevents .reg files from appearing in Quick Access:
