    usikpa,

    "Recent Items" wasn't an available folder to add to the Start list since all frequent folders and recent files are in Quick access now in File Explorer for easy access.

    Using the tutorial below to reset folder views back to default will restore how Quick access used to look.

    Folder View Settings - Reset to Default in Windows 8

    Copying those files to another user profile will most likely corrupt the other profile.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    That Reset (in Option 2) turned out to be EXACTLY what I was looking for. The Quick Access now looks as it did originally.

    Much appreciated

    Hello Chuck, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Did you move your user profile folders to another location?

    Did you do anything to remove folders from "This PC"?

    Hello,
    I did not move my personal folder. I did remove folders from "this PC", although the links worked for about 2 days after doing that so I didn't feel it was linked.

    In that case, you may have used the old ones that had this has a side effect. See if downloading and merging the .reg file for your 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 10 in step 2 of OPTION TWO below to restore the folders in This PC will have them work again.

    Afterwards, you can use the newer .reg files in OPTION ONE below to remove the folders from This PC without that side effect now. :)

    Thank you much sir!
    That seems to have worked, now I gotta figure out how to restore the "videos" shortcut.

    If i left the "Missing Shortcut" message up for about a min it displayed a "problem with Shortcut" error and i clicked delete for videos one... now its grayed out in the settings =(

    Great news so far Chuck. :)

    Double check in the folder below to see if the Videos shortcut for the Start list is missing.

    %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu Places

    If so, then here's a copy of the Videos shortcut in a ZIP file below that you can download, unblock, and copy back to inside the Start Menu Places folder.
