    Quick access appears instead of folder content


    When I click on a folder on my desktop quick access appears instead of the folder content.

    I've just updated to w10 insider preview build 14361 but I have had this problem since build 14352.

    I tried to disable quick access but that just redirects me to the onedrive folder. And disabling the onedrive folder redirects me to "this pc"

    Try this:

    1. run RegEdit
    2. export as AllFolders.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders"
    3. delete whole "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags"
    4. merge back in the registry the AllFolders.reg backup

    This will reset your folders view and hopefully solve your problems. I use that also when Quick Access randomly gets trashed and starts to display as a normal folder...
