    Remove from Quick access


    You guys have helped me with other technical problems so lets see if anyone can help with this one !
    Cannot delete or remove from Quick access the 3 files that say recent files, i have tried uninstalling OneDrive & reinstalling which didn't work ! Any ideas on how to either remove these or just plain delete them ??
    Thanks

    Hello Chuck, :)

    If you like, clearing your recent items using an option in the tutorial below should clear them in Quick access.
