Windows 10: File Explorer - Quick Access Does Not Show Recent Files
File Explorer - Quick Access Does Not Show Recent Files
For some strange reasons, File Explorer no longer shows the Recent files. Is there any way to fix this?
Thank you very much for your quick response! However, the problem I am facing is that in the right-hand panel of Quick Access, the Recent files section does not show any files recently opened. I've tried everything with no avail. It would be great if someone can help me solve this problem.
Many thanks in advance!
Hi, wondered why the first (for example) is not relevant.
"Recent items is a list of the files that you have used or opened recently. These items are displayed as "Recent files" in Quick access, and under "Recent" in jump lists on the Start menu and taskbar."
Quote from that. Is that not relevant to your situation? If not, please post a screenshot explaining your problem.
Good that you've tried, but 'I've tried everything' (what exactly?) and then asking for ideas - which you've presumably tried- may discourage a response.
Hi, I've tried both of the options provided in your earlier message but none of them helped. Please see the screen shot below. As you will find, the "Resent file" section is blank. Thanks!
Try clicking on view...then on the right side there is options...click and select change folder and search options; there is a setting there under privacy for show recent files in quick access.
Thanks, Trevo! I've tried that and ticked both boxes but it did not work. Thanks again!
Maybe the easiest way at this point is simply to wait for the anniversary update.. this big Windows reinstall may well fix this without worrying further.
(As with any major change, make sure you have a good set of disk images before it just in case).
Thank you very much for your help!
I updated my Windows 10 today. Guess what, it's fixed! I can see the Recent files on Quick access now. Thanks for your help!!!

Hi, in the "Quick access" window it currently shows the 20 most recently opened files. I would like to increase that number to something around 40 or 50. I'm guessing I'll have to do this through the registry, but I don't know where. Any help would...
