Windows 10: Remove Gray Pin icon from Quick access Navigation Pane Solved

    Remove Gray Pin icon from Quick access Navigation Pane


    For Pinned items in Quick Access in Win10 Navigation pane, a gray Pin icon is displayed beside each item.

    Can it be removed or made transparent with Reshacker?

    Note: I wanted to keep the Quick access feature so that I can still drag and drop in Nav pane.

    Thank you

    Note: Searching the forums did not bring up what i was Looking for

    @mykou and @ish

    Thanks for this hack. I have always hated that icon. It must be my OCD.

    Thanks to everyone that contributed to this thread over the years, especially @mykou

    I have been using another workaround.
    I just hide Quick Access and added my favorite folders to This PC using WinAero Tweaker.
    I feel this way explorer is much cleaner.
