    Issues with quick access and file explorer


    Today after starting my computer, I realized that quick access items disappeared and I am unable to pin anything.
    In addition, all pinned items in the menu that appears when you right click on the file explorer disappeared as well.

    I am attaching images to clarify the issues.

  2. File Explorer not responding after Win 10 Fall Creator update

    Thank you for the quick reply and suggestions.

    What I tried that worked so far and I'll probably leave at that: go into file explorer options and select 'open file explorer' to This PC. The bugaboo in my case seems to be the Quick Access button. If File Explorer opens to Quick Access or if you select
    Quick Access after File Explorer opens successfully, File Explorer freezes.

    Issues with quick access and file explorer

    After a long search, it seems that I finally got a solution from the sevenforums.com that also seems to work for W10.
    Here, there is the link of the post: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...all-items.html

    I used the third option which consisted in using the command prompt and worked like a charm.

    I hope the solution is useful for anyone that runs into the same problem.

    Cheers!

    I just tried the second and 3rd method but non of them worked.
    When I copy the code into Command Prompt it gives me this message:

    "The system cannot find the path specified."

    This happens with both codes.

    Please help me, I'm really really stuck.
