    Windows 11 22H2 Can't pin folders to quick access


    I just unsynced one drive and uninstalled it from my computer and that has kind of messed with my file structure. I am trying to pin my system's Documents folder to quick access so that I don't have to go through C -> Users -> <userName> -> Documents every time I want to look at my Documents folder. I tried resetting my folder view but that didn't work. Every time I try to pin the folder to quick access through the file explorer it allows me to right-click and there are no errors that pop up, but it just doesn't pin the folder. Nothing happens at all.

    :)

    Pin to quick access does nothing.

    I seem unable to customize the quick access area in any way. I already tried the procedure outlined here:

    Redirecting

    Yet "pin to quick access" does absolutely nothing.

    Any other suggestions?

  3. 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”


    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.



    Thank you.
