    Can't unpin FTP location from Quick Access

    I've pinned an FTP location to the Quick Access menu in Windows 10 Explorer, but now cannot unpin it.

    To replicate:

    1. Browse to an FTP location in Windows Explorer

    2. Right-click "Quick Access"

    3. Select "Pin current folder to Quick access"

    4. Right-click the newly pinned folder

    You should see that there is no option to unpin the folder. The context menu only offers the (greyed out) option to "Expand".

    Notably, this pin only appears in Explorer and not in the jump lists (for example by right-clicking Explorer from the task bar).

    How do I remove this pin?

    Not a solution, per se, but you could right click on the 'pictures bar' itself and choose unpin.
