    Stupid "Quick Access" shortcut on my desktop


    I disabled Quick Access via WinAero and now there's a stupid "shortcut" to it I can't delete on my desktop. How do I get rid of it?

    It randomly disappears and reappears. How do I get rid of it forever?

    I'd say undo whatever WinAero did, and see if this below may work better. If you need to, you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you applied the WinAero method.

    Well, I can't figure out how to get it back to the way it was before. Nothing worked.

    Did you have a restore point available dated before you changed it?

    I had this issue about a year ago after I used a tweak to remove Quick Access from Windows Explorer. The "fix" for this issue was stupid simple, but I cannot remember what I did. I do remember that it involved right clicking on the Desktop, but from there I do not know what I did (maybe Refresh). I no longer use the tweak and so I have not seen this issue recently.

    Winaero Tweaker should have a 'restore to default' or 'undo changes' or whatever it's called feature, probably in the Menu

    Did you try
    - Control Panel (Icon view)
    - Personalization
    - Change desktop icons (on the left)
    - Un-tick Computer
    - Apply
    - OK

    Good luck

    Nope. Didn't work. It randomly disappears and comes back.

    If you disabled 'Quick Access' with Winaero Tweaker, you'll have to remove any shortcut pinned there, (1), have Explorer open with 'This PC', (2), uncheck items in (3) and clear Explorer history, (4)

    That was the first thing I did before disabling it. The icon still keeps randomly appearing and disappearing. Nothing makes it die permanently.
