    Icons Won't Stay the Same Size in Quick Access


    Hi folks. I'm a longtime Windows user (since 3.1) and decided to get into a forum again. I have an odd problem:

    The icons in the Quick Access folder keep reverting back to the Tiles setting no matter how many times I change them to a larger size. I can set them either with the menu at the top of the window or with CTRL Mouse wheel. But if I click away to another folder and then go back, they have returned to Tile size again.

    I've tried unpinning and then repinning the folders. I tried moving them to another location temporarily. I tried clearing %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations. None of it has worked.

    Ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Quick Access bar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    We would be glad to help you with the issue you are facing today. I understand the difficulty.

    Remove items from Quick access.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps.

    • Right click on the file or folder.
    • Select the option “unpin from the quick access”


    To pin items to an item already on the quick access bar.

    Follow the below steps.

    I would suggest you to create folder in the desktop screen & place all the files or folder which need to pin to the quick access.

    • Open the quick access.
    • Select the Desktop option.
    • Right click on the folder & select the option “pin to quick access”


    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.
