    How to add shortcut link in Quick Access through Registry


    Hi,

    I want to add shortcut link of one of the folder location to "Quick Access" in Windows 10 x64.

    In the case of Windows 10 x86 I used to put my shortcut link in the folder "C:\Users\user_name\Links" & it showed me shortcut in favorites at left side. Also it works using this command :

    Code:
    mklink /D %USERPROFILE%\Links\MyFolder C:\\MyFolder

    I want to do same thing for Windows 10 x64. So I try to use that command on Windows 10 x64 also I have tried to directly copy shortcut & pasted into the location of Quick Access.

    But, still it's not showing in left panel of Quick Access.

    So, does anybody know how to do that on Windows 10 x64 ? (or perhaps through Registry) ?.


    Thanks.
