    Disable Quick Access


    I read the following thread.

    Quick access in Navigation Pane - Add or Remove in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I am looking for a faster way to do it with less steps. Does anyone have a .reg or .bat that does everything for you? Can someone make one?

    You could try making those changes then exporting the modified keys for merging later.
    However, if you reset or re-install, you'll probably have to re-gain permissions for those keys.

    Go to file explorer options/general tab/open file explorer to: change to this pc... And under general tab on bottom. Privac section. uncheck recently used files.... And show frequently.... And click clear button. Apply. Ok

    Hope thats help

    If I could figure this out without ever opening the registry, that would be great!

    Modifying the registry edit to work on a per-user basis avoids the Ownershop/Permissions issues faced with HKLM.

    So here you go!

    Per user? Is there no way to do it on every user?

    Ah, so if I do take ownership and then change it to 0xa6000000, or w/e it is, by hand, then it's for all users?

    If you follow the original tutorial you linked to, yes. When you edit entries under HKLM, it affects all users, entries under HKCU ony affect the current user.
