    Restore recent folders to quick access, including list of 4 recent


    Hello,
    The recent folders have disappeared from my quick access menu. I came across some threads that explain how to restore the recent folders shortcut to the quick access menu - this worked. However, before it disappeared, there was a list of the 4 most recent folders appearing below the 'Recent Folders' shortcut. They do not appear now. I would appreciate someone's help with solving this.
    Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 replaced Recent Folders with Quick Access. how to change 10 to 20?

    For anyone still struggling with this, here is a step by step guide to

    • Adding Recent Folders back to Quick Access (easy)
    • Getting Recent Folders to appear in Save As dialogs (tricky, needs registry modifactions, not to attempted unless you are comfortable modifying the Registry)

    Welcome to TenForums @wolf145

    You don't say where you found these threads, but we have some tutorials here on TenForums on that subject which probably cover the steps you took.

    Turn On or Off Recent Items and Frequent Places in Windows 10
    Reset and Clear Recent Items and Frequent Places in Windows 10

    Note that the second one on 'how to clear the lists' basically says turn it off then on again. I'm afraid your lists may well have been cleared by now. The frequent places in your quick access will rebuild its list as you use the PC, but there's no way to retrieve an old list. You'll have to recreate it by revisiting those places I'm afraid.

    If you have been relying on these quick access links as your primary way to find places you want, then once you have rebuilt the list you can right-click on the important ones and choose 'Pin to Quick access' to make them permanent.
