    open-file-location for pinned shortcuts: file system error(-214492695)


    This happens anytime I select the context menu item "open file location" for a start menu shortcut. Tried several suggestions that were posted for file/folder location problems including sfc, dism, registry but no luck. The error popup is from runtimebroker.exe, but searches for the exe name and error code came up dry here, on google, and in other places.
    Same failure occurs when selecting the show-in-folder item when right-clicking in the edge browser's downloads list.
    However, open file location for all desktop shortcuts gives expected result (no errors). The right folder opens in windows explorer.
    This problem only started happening about a year ago on my desktop (Dell Vostro 220), but has never happened, even now, on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1545). Both are running Win 10 v1909 build 18363.628. installed from the same media, regularly updated together, and running the same way for 3 years now. I have not been able to determine any changes that were made to the desktop system (or the laptop). It is certainly not disabling, but it is irritating, because a weird problem in one place is often found to be related to a hidden problem elsewhere..
    I have not found this error reported after doing dozens of searches. Anybody else seeing this?
    Maybe my creativity for composing searches is weakening along with several other intellectual capabilities as I approach my 80th birthday.

    :)

    Open file location is missing in pinned apps


    ,
    No, that's not the sort of 'file location' the OP is referring to. Your 'file location' opens File Explorer at the location of the shortcut for that app in the Start Menu's Programs folder. The OP wants the list of recently opened files, or the Jump List as it is known (hover over each one and it shows its file location). Theirs is turned off (and yours by the looks of it).

    Yes. This is the one. Weirdly it now shows all the recent files after update. Maybe that has something to do with it. I did not do anything at all.

    Thank you again. I guess the problem is solved.

    Location of File Explorer's pinned shortcuts in Taskbar

    I am looking for the location of the list of
    pinned File Explorer shortcuts on the Taskbar. When any of the pinned Taskbar programs are right-clicked, a list of "Recent" items appears. If any of those are pinned, a list above "Recent" appears called "Pinned". I am looking for the
    location of those Pinned files wherever it may be located. The reason for this is I want to make sure that list is transferred from one PC to another, whether it be W7 to W10 or W10 to W10. The image below is what I am working with on my PC. I want to know
    where Softball, User_scripts, Active Projects, Script_Logs, Dropbox and Install shortcuts are located, not where they go to.
