    Can someone give me registry keys for windows explorer


    Specifically, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HomeFolderDesktop, and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HomeFolderMobile

    Story if you are interested:
    So I upgrade from 10130 to 10158, and in the process, I ended up with a shortcut in the quick access section that was impossible to remove. So I deleted the keys ^, and now I can't pin stuff to quick access, although the empty shortcut was removed , so can anyone kindly export the keys and give it to me somehow? Thanks.

    Ok, thank you, but now the empty folder thing that can't be unpinned is back. I deleted the two keys and imported yours. Help?Click image for larger version.

    That would be for your %UserProfile%\Downloads folder.

    As a test, see if pining that folder at that location will get it to work for you afterwards.

    If not, then you could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo it.

    Nope, right clicking and pinning doesn't pin downloads to quick access or replace the broken shortcut. And this happened when I updated from 10130 to 10154, so I am not sure a system restore is viable.
    Edit: 10158 I mean

    Did you move your Downloads folder to a different location that default?

    I'm afraid I haven't found were Quick access stores pinned folders yet to be able to just reset it.

    I fixed it! YAY
    I deleted the downloads folder, which removed it from the left pane, then recreated the folder and repinned it.
