    Hello Debbie, :)

    It would make sense that your "Desktop" folder would be considered a folder that is frequently opened since it is the folder used by your desktop.

    When the "Desktop" folder is added back as a frequent folder in quick access, is it still unpinned?

    I don't have 'Show recently used' or 'Show frequently used' ticked in the Folder Options and don't want either of those ticked. So that's likely why I had to manually 'unpin' it. But no matter, I can put up with it.

    Is there any way of removing frequent folders but still pinning stuff to quick access?

    Hey mate, :)

    Luckily, this will not affect anything you have pinned to Quick access. You will still be able to pin other items to Quick access as well.

    I think you may have misinterpreted question. If you unpin everything, the frequents folder listing on right hand panel screen disappears. However if you pin something it comes back.

    I want to be able to pin folders but not have the frequents folder listing reappearing. I know I can collapse frequent folder listing.

    I really see no point of it when I have folders pinned on left hand panel.

    Yep, I misunderstood your question.

    I'm not aware of a way to not have the frequent folders section show while anything is pinned to quick access.
