    Needing help fixing my file explorer area?


    Okay here's what I did I removed the stuff that used to show because it was getting confusing. When I used to open file explorer it used to show everything from things I opened to things I had downloaded. I hated it so I completely removed it. Because I didn't know how to make it show just specific files types.

    For example if I had downloaded something while watching a video file and wanted to know the last video file I had opened there would be a mess of different things in there and sometimes the file would no longer be in the list.

    Is there a way to bring back the part where it shows the files by type and not everything. I would like it to only sow things I opened like mp4 files or flv files. Not things I have downloaded. And another reason why I want to to show only them files is because the vlc media player normally plays the video from where I left off if I open the correct one first.

    I think it had to do with the quick access. And the way I tinkered with it. It currently only shows 3 folders but not the files. Of recently opened ones. Just 3 folders that I have added. How do I make it show specific file types if I can at all.

    I know this question is kind of out there but I have been trying to fix this issue for a week or two now.

    :)

    File Explorer help needed!

    Just in case you are still suffering with this problem, the two pages at the links below both explain the method to get rid of the duplicate drive entries. The tenforums link also provides .reg files to automate removing or restoring the registry keys which
    cause the problem.

    VLC lets you see a history of files and lets you play them can't you use that?
