    I'd like to know if it's at all possible to remove links from quick access that are duplicated under This PC once you access them from quick access.

    In this scenario I opened documents in quick access and it duplicated itself under This PC. This will happen with multiple links at a time. It's very annoying and also inconsistent as in sometimes it happens and other times it doesn't.

    Hello Josey, Remove duplicate links under This PC in navigation pane :)

    It'll remove all the separate groups of drives in the navigation pane. It won't remove the ones listed under the "This PC" group.
