    Issues with quick access and file explorer

    Today after starting my computer, I realized that quick access items disappeared and I am unable to pin anything.
    In addition, all pinned items in the menu that appears when you right click on the file explorer disappeared as well.

    I am attaching images to clarify the issues.Click image for larger version.

    After a long search, it seems that I finally got a solution from the that also seems to work for W10.
    Here, there is the link of the post:

    I used the third option which consisted in using the command prompt and worked like a charm.

    I hope the solution is useful for anyone that runs into the same problem.

    It didn't work

    I just tried the second and 3rd method but non of them worked.
    When I copy the code into Command Prompt it gives me this message:

    "The system cannot find the path specified."

    This happens with both codes.

    Please help me, I'm really really stuck.
