    I added a folder to quick access in explorer. But after I deleted that folder I am unable to delete the item in quick access?

    Hello huub, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Are you able to right click on the item and click on Remove from Quick access to do so?

    No... That is not an option in the right click menu. You can easaly test it. Make a shortcut in the quick access, after that, delete the original folder...

    When you delete the source, it should automatically be removed from Quick access.

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing this item in Quick access with its context menu open to see what the issue may be.

    How about from within the main window of quick access?

    I've never seen a folder pinned to Quick access have an option to expand in the navigation pane though.

    Please go ahead and post a full screenshot showing this inside Quick access to see if it may reveal anything.

    It is really the same... Items that exist, I can unpin. The 2 that are deleted, not anymore.
    Screenshot would reveal nothing more...

    Without a screenshot to rule out stuff, this is just guess work.

    In that case, you might see if creating a new folder with the same name at the source location may allow you to remove it from Quick access.

    Did you already see if restarting the computer may clear it?
