    Quick Access Crashes Explorer

    Hi Bill,

    Quick Access is a new feature in Windows 10 File Explorer navigation pane which helps users quickly navigate to locations which are frequently used. However, if you're having issues with Quick Access, you can try to disable and enable it. To disable Quick
    Access, follow these steps:

    • Type File Explorer Option in the search box.
    • Click on File Explorer Options.
    • Under General tab, choose This PC in the Open File Explorer to: drop down menu.
    • Uncheck Show recently used files in Quick access and
      Show frequently use folders in Quick access.
    • Click Apply an OK.
    • Restart the computer and re-enable Quick access.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested troubleshooting steps.

    File Explorer Crashes Due To Quick Access - Registry Fix?

    I was following a guide suggesting putting custom items in the File Explorer Quick Access Panel.
    I think I actually set something already in the quick panel - or a "divider line", which I was trying to move to the right so I could see what was in the quick panel already - to be in the quick panel.
    At which point File Explorer crashed.
    An attempt to open it, whether from a desktop folder or the taskbar, crashes (and also wipes and reups the taskbar contents).
    Opening File Explorer Options from the start button, clearing the cache and unticking the two boxes for showing history in the Quick Access panel does NOT help.
    Basically, I've lost file explorer. There must be registry entries that could reset the Quick Access to its original state.
    Help!
    Thanks)
