    "unspecified error" on file explorer


    when i pin a partition, library, or anything else to the quick access, it doesn't pin. then it shows this error:

    "C:\Users\Ziad\Desktop

    Unspecified error"


    any solutions?

    The link says to open cmd (doesn't state if to open it as Admin, but try both ways anyways). After you open cmd, paste this in there:
    del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\*

    Yes, I just found that too, but that deletes everything in 'Automatic Destinations' and would clear ALL jumplists, not just the one for Explorer.

    To clear just File Explorer's jump list (which includes 'Quick Access') you should delete:
    %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\AutomaticDestinations\f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms

    "The system cannot find the path specified"
    i guess that's because it only says %APPDATA%, not %APPDATA%\Local or LocalLow or Roaming.
    update: still doesn't work of putting these three folders after %APPDATA%.

    there's no folder called "Recent" on AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\.
    okay. nevermind about what i all said. there is actually a folder called "Recent" on that path. so i should just paste the path "%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations" on the file explorer.


    alright, this problem is fixed!
    i just manually deleted the file explorer jumplist file.
    thanks a lot.
