    Brink,

    I hope you don't mind but shouldn't the tutorial by called
    Add or Remove chosen folders from Quick Access in Windows 10
    since the word Favorites is not used for this anywhere in Windows 10?

    I appreciate that any change would have to be followed through in the tutorial's text as well.

    All the best,
    Denis
    Hello Denis,

    "Quick Access" replaced the "Favorites" (aka: Links) folder in the navigation pane of File Explorer.

    The folders added to "Quick Access" in this tutorial are just what's inside the %UserProfile%\Links folder.

    There's not much need or reason to add them now though.

    Yes, I know. Since MS discontinued that inadvisable [Windows 7 Windows explorer] re-purposing of the word Favourites when they made Windows 10 File explorer, I'm suggesting that the tutorial also drops any use of that word.

    The original point of the tutorial was to add "Favorites" back (for those that wanted it) into "Quick Links".

    No need to rename the tutorial since that's what it's for.

    The tutorial below may be for what you meant instead.

    Brink,

    Yes, I had not thought to look further when I found the first one.

    Thanks,
