ID:	46588(BARS ON THE LEFT )Hello guys I'm looking to customize what appears in the quick access menu and I am also looking to give Google Drive it's own drop down menu (not in quick access), is there some folder options that I can change somewhere to customize these things?

    also how do I get rid of stuff in quick access? it looks really untidy and it's bothering me

    thank you

    Hello enviouz, :)

    If you like, look under "N" in our tutorial index for "Navigation Pane" tutorials. We have a few for add/remove and hide/show that may help you with this.

    To completely remove remove quick access:
    Follow the tutorial at:
    [Windows 10 Tip] Remove OneDrive, Quick Access, Homegroup and Network Icons from Navigation Pane of This PC - AskVG
    To remove some stuff from quick access:

    It's pretty easy, if you want to remove a section such as "Folders", right click and click/tap "Unpin from quick access".

    If none of these answers match your questions, please reply
