    Several annoying issues with Explorer, can someone provide assistance?


    Hi, I am using Win 10 x64 Pro, clean installation.

    1. Recent folders in explorer jump list are not updating.



    They seem to be random folders from my second HDD and clicking on them says the folder has been moved (which is not true) and it offers to delete the shortcut. Deleting also does nothing, item still remains. Disabling recent folder in settings > personalization > start also has no effect



    2. If I tick 'show recently used files in quick access' in folder options it also has no effect. When I open folder options after this it is unticked again.



    3. I can't pin anything to quick access, I get 'parameter is incorrect' error.



    Any help would be appreciated. Or at least someone telling me I am not alone so I can hope for MS to fix these issues.

    All three problems were solved by deleting %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\ in case anyone's wondering!

    Made an account just to thank you for supplying the solution when you found it. Had the same problem and was having a hard time googling.

    You the man!

    Verified that this works!


    Thank you! After deleting all the files, my customer was able to use quick access again.
