    How do I increase the number of frequent folders?


    I'd like to be able to increase the default number of frequent folders located in the quick access menu so that it's more than 4. I tried searching for this question but couldn't find anyone else asking it.

    Welcome to the TenForums.

    I tried this on mine and I don't seem to have a limit. If you right click on a folder, click pin it to Quick Access, (Quick Access along the left navigation pane), does it add it and in doing so remove one you previously pinned?

    BlahTrick,

    Frequent folders = Displays up to ten folders that you frequently opened on the system.

    Thanks for the reply, but I already know that you can pin folders to quick access. I'm wanting to increase the amount of default, dynamic folders that the system organizes for me. I only have 4.

    I've looked at that before and it doesn't seem to be about what I want. I want more than 4 default folders in the "frequent folders" section. This looks like it's just about adding or removing the "frequent folder" feature altogether, unless I'm looking at this wrong.

    In all honesty, I originally intended on messaging Brink, because I've lurked these forums before and I figured if anyone knew if this was possible, it'd be him. But I'm not even able to because I need like 5 posts before I'm allowed

    Regardless, I really appreciate you guys trying to help!

    There are other ways to draw @Brink's attention to this thread - mentioning him with the @ symbol (as I have just done) is one....

    Hello @BlahTrick,

    I'm afraid that I haven't seen a way to increase the default amount either other than pinning the folders to Quick Access as a workaround.

    Aw really? I was thinking maybe there was like a registry value or something with the default "4" that I could find and edit.
    I thought this guy was onto something but I guess not: Is it possible to increase the number of dynamic frequent folders shown in the quick access pane in windows 10?
