    How Do I Stop Quick Access From Automatically Adding Links?


    In Windows/Files Explorer the Quick Access menu, which I have set to open when WE is started, is placing links to folders automatically that I have recently been accessed. I don't want it to do this. I want it organized just like you don't have a link to every website you go to listed in your favorites bar in your browser. How do I stop it from doing this?

    The following tutorial will show you how to remove recently used files and frequently used folders in Quick Access:

    This is what it will then look like.

    The next tutorial will also show you how to remove the Quick Access entry all together if you wanted to, but I find just doing the above is sufficient, as I don't really notice it being there anymore without entries in it:
