    Recent file or folders in Quick Access


    I have browsed through Add or Remove Frequent folders from Quick access in Windows 10 Windows 10 Customization Tutorials

    However it is not clear to me, how I may keep only the normal items, but not continually add "recent" items.
    Sorry if this seems a stupid thread, but I do find QA as set up somewhat a nuisance.

    Items you want to keep you can 'Pin' to Quick Access via the Navigation Pane;

    Pin or Unpin Quick Access Locations in Windows 10 Windows 10 General Tips Tutorials

    'History' items you don't want showing you'll need to clear and uncheck as per figure in Option One/Step 4 in the tutorial.

    Hi, suggestion: if you want better and almost universal access to frequently used items (and favourites) in programs and universal apps using buttons in the title bar, have a look at Actual Window tools (not free but can be obtained using Trialpay). They offer the extraordinarily comprehensive main product, and simplified versions too.
    Actual Window Manager: Multiple Monitors, Virtual Desktops, Windows Control and Other Useful Tools.

    Listary has a useful free/pro option, but is not as universal.

    Example (here using an open box):
    Recent file or folders in Quick Access-untitled.png
    You can see the Actual Window Manager title buttons at the top, and a Listary box (here triggered by a middle click).
    Below the open box is a Listary search toolbar (optional).
