    Quick Access / Favorites -Need it to open in drill down from left side


    IN windows 7 there is a setting someplace that will make it so when I click on a favorites shortcut It will open with the all the little arrows turned down and showing its location. Below it shows how we need it to look when we click on the util favorites.
    Quick Access / Favorites -Need it to open in drill down from left side [​IMG]


    IN win 7 i did something to a setting so it would show as it does above when I clicked on a favorites link. I can not remember that setting. And I can not figure out how to make my windows 10 open the quick access links in the manner shown in my picture. It just stays in the quick access part and that does not let me drill down and navigate. I do not remember what they call it when you turn the triangle down and it shows folders in the left and lets you drill down.
    thank you

    :)

  2. 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”

    Quick Access Not Working

    Hi Dustin,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Follow the below steps to repair the broken database of Quick Access.

    Method 1:

    Before repairing the database, try to disable and then re-enable Quick Access to see if it helps. To disable and re-enable Quick Access, follow the below steps:

    Step 1: To remove frequent folders and recent files list from Quick Access, open File Explorer > click on View tab in Ribbon >
    click on Options > Change folder and search options to open Folder Options.

    Step 2: You’ll have to uncheck the following two check-boxes present under the Privacy section to disable Quick Access:

    • Show recently used files in Quick Access.
    • Show frequently used folders in Quick Access.

    Step 3: Click Apply and Exit. The action will instantly remove these two sections from Quick Access in File Explorer. (To clear your Quick Access history press the ‘Clear’ button against Clear File Explorer History).

    Step 4: Then, check
    the following two check-boxes again to enable Quick Access that you did in
    Step2.

    • Show recently used files in Quick Access.
    • Show frequently used folders in Quick Access.

    Step 5: Restart the PC once and check the issue and if the issue persist, follow the
    Method 2.

    Method 2:

    The Method 2 will repair the broken database of Quick Access.

    Step 1: Open File Explorer and paste this folder path: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations in the address bar and hit Enter.

    Step 2: Once the folder is opened, press ‘Ctrl’ key and the ‘A’ from your keyboard to select all of its contents and delete it.

    Step 3: Do the same for this folder path as well: %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations

    Step 4: Restart the PC once and check the issue.

    Hope it helps.
