    I've tried a number of different paths to get to the folder I need (it's on a shared network), including pinning it to my taskbar for quick access. Nothing I've tried has worked to make the folder I need appear when trying to save my files.

    It's not a personal computer, so reinstalling the program is out of the question.

  2. Recent folders / frequent folders / recent files / quick access

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand your query related to accessing recent items that you have accessed on your PC.



    Usually, when you access a file or folder on your PC it shows in the Quick Access menu as recent files.



    However, if you are looking for the most recent files that you have accessed from the PC then the simplest way is to access the recent items using the run command.



    1. Press Windows key + R. This will open
      Run. Alternatively, you can go to Start and search for
      Run.
    2. In Run dialog box, type
      shell:recent
      and hit Enter.


    This will open a window with all the recent items that you have accessed. You can also pin this folder in the Quick Access menu so that it will be easier for you to access once again.



    Kindly follow the steps to pin the recent items on the Quick Access menu.



    1. Right click on the Quick Access menu on the left hand pane.
    2. Select Pin current folder to Quick access.


    Once you pin the folder you should be able to access the recent items. Refer the screenshot for more information.

    File Explorer Quick Access has Recent Folders pinned but it vanishes..


    You can "Pin to Quick Access" the "Recent" folder in Windows 10. But the "Recent" folder is hidden when you "Save As" from an application, which is very annoying. So here is the fix to get Recent Items showing in Save As dialog boxes:

    1) Optional step: In File Explorer, if you have already pinned the "Recent" folder to Quick Access, right-click "Recent" and select "Unpin from Quick Access"

    2) Start a Command Prompt
    3) Copy and paste the entire following line into the Command Prompt, and then press Enter:
    mklink /j "%USERPROFILE%\Recent Items" %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent

    4) Close the Command Prompt window
    5) Back to File Explorer, either click on your Username under Desktop, or browse to C:\Users\<username>
    6) You'll notice there is a new yellow shortcut named "Recent Items". Right-click it and choose "Pin to Quick Access"
    7) "Recent Items" will now appear under Quick Access.

    8) "Recent Items" will also now appear under Quick Access when you use the "Save As" dialog box from any Windows 10 application.

    File Explorer Quick Access has Recent Folders pinned but it vanishes..


    So File Explorer Quick Access shows Recent Folders, because I pinned it to be there:

    But, when you go to "Save as" dialog box, Recent Folders inexplicably disappears from Quick Access:

    Why is that? How can I fix it so that "Save as" and "Open" show Recent Folders in Quick Access in navigation pane?
