    What windows build are you on?

    Builds 240 and 532 (x2) work perfectly for me. I can pin as many as I like, incl mapped drives, unmapped drives, NAS folders, and any number of folders within and shares from other computers.

    So it certainly isn't a fundamental bug but there is obviously some difference causing your problem. But how to track it down is a puzzle.

    linw: I am on latest version of Win 10.
    Are you saying that you can pin multiple folders from the same NAS?

    Absolutely. Five of the above are from my WD MyBookLive NAS.

    Same for me, @stvmitch - I can't reliably fix folders from a networked-drive (mapped or otherwise) to the 'Quick Access' facility; I can have one there, but if I try to add another it just replaces the former one - it's driving me nuts as I always used to use the 'Favourites' for direct links to the folders I used most.

    As a (hopefully) temporary fix, I've had to create shortcuts to the network folders I regularly access and save them in a new folder on my C-drive, with this new folder fixed to the Quick Access menu - not exactly 'quick' access, but better than nothing.

    Really appreciate it if anyone's got a proper fix...

    Really weird how different comps can have different results like this.

    Mind you, I have seen different results because of the baggage carried across from the previous OS. Registry entries can, and do, cause probs that a clean install won't see. It's a bit luck of the draw.

    I have seen it on my main comp and I have just spent a day and a half fixing a win 10 update problem that migrated from a previous win 7 setup.

    Best of luck.

    Yep, that's the worse thing I find, the amount of time it swallows up

    Time certainly flies by doing this stuff. The update problem I worked on wasn't helped by the fact that the computer was in Australia and I am in NZ!

    Turned out to be a registry entry that had disabled windows update. Funny how these problems all seem so easy after you have fixed them.
