    How to sort "This PC" or "Quick Access" in Navigation Pane?


    Hey folks,

    I am currently trying to move "This PC" to the top of the navigation pane, or - alternatively - move the "Quick Access" to the very bottom.

    Is there any possible way?

    I have found (and used) ways for every other entry, but not those 2. I have even stupidly tried to apply the "SortOrderIndex" on random for both, without success.

    Every input will be appreciated :-)

    Cheers

    In an file explorer window, go to view|options, select change folder and search options. In general tab, open file explorer option to This PC in place of quick access.

    Thanks for your reply, but that was not quite what I was looking for.

    I simply want to reverse the order of the navigation pane, putting "This PC" on top, followed by the "Quick Access" and the cloud storages at the bottom.

    It may not be what you're after but, I've used Winaero Tweaker to put everything I want into 'Quick Access', (including 'This PC'), and gotten rid of the rest.
    You can keep Cloud Services below.

    Thanks for your efforts, but it doesn't quite do the job as I want to.

    (I know, I'm being pretty picky on this )

    It's basic but does the job - This PC sub folder's at the top, then cloud storage/shared drives just below and then Quick Access at the bottom...

    Hey Karlskii,

    thank you, too, for your effort, but sadly it's not what I am looking for.
    Since "Quick Access" is dynamic, I want it to be seperated from the static "This PC".

    In fact, the only thing I'd like to see changed in my screenshot above, is to move the whole category "Quick Access" to the very bottom - beneath "This PC".
