    Hey mate,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to unpin locations from Quick Access.

    Pin or Unpin Quick Access Locations in Windows 10

    This PC doesn't have pinned items. Its navigation pane shows everything in the This PC main window. What were you wanting to remove?

    Hey Shaun

    Can any of these specific pinned items be removed by GPO or registry?
    I want to get rid of Music, Pictures , Videos, from the "quick access" and "this pc" lists

    Cheers

    I'm not aware of a way to do so via GPO or regedit.

    Thanks Shaun....I used another of your great tutorials to remove the unwanted folders from the this pc view....and thank you for the confirmation regarding the quick access pinned items.
    It's a shame there is no registry tweak for it.

    Thanks again buddy :)
