    Update: I deleted OneDrive and used 2 registry hacks to remove it from left pane. Also installed Dropbox and it works just fine. I do not use or need Microsoft Office Suite. LibreOffice suits me. Thanks for the help, always good to know were to get good advice

    BTW here is an update. Although I had view options set to "This PC" I just noticed today that at the bottom of the screen there are 2 boxes which can be checked or unchecked, therefore removing recent files and or folders.

    Pinned Only Folders in Quick Access


    Quick Access can be customized to ONLY show Pinned Folders; you don't need to have it show Frequently Used Folders or Recently Used Files. Change those through the View >> Options >> General >> Privacy Controls
    This tutorial should work: Add or Remove Recent Files from Quick Access in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
    How to Add or Remove Recent files from Quick access in Windows 10—applies to BOTH Recently Used Files & Frequently Used Folders
