    Quick Access help


    I can't link a shortcut of my user folder to Quick Access. It only links the direct folder which has a silly name (created by the first five letters of my email address), and it's just so stupid to look at.

    I want Quick Access to refer to the shortcut as the 'User' directory, but this seems impossible to do without renaming the direct folder, which is not recommended at all.

    Link the parent folder "Users",
    may not be as handy as the actual folder but at least you'll only be 1 click away rather than drilling down through Explorer's entire hierarchy.

    You could also, if the opportunity lends itself, install Windows with a Local Account then switch to an MS Account afterwards, then your User folder will retain the 'generic' name you would give it at the time.
