    I just tried the batch file, it ran, the desktop flashed, WE closed and did not reopen. When I opened it everything was as before:

    What you originally posted below was from a jump list instead of Quick access that you just now posted above. Did you unpin the folder from within Quick access instead of a jump list?

    I originally tried unpinning from the Quick access before my first post:

    Off topic, there's a note below this message that reads: "You have selected 1 post that is not part of this thread. Quote this post as well, or deselect this post."I don't know what that means.

    Odd. Do the folders still open from quick access?

    The message you got indicates that you have selected a post (ex: for quoting). Clicking on the "Deselect this post" option should clear it.

    As a test, pin some other folder to Quick Access, select this new pinned folder and all the others you want to unpin, right click on the new pinned item for the selected items, and see if clicking on "Unpin from Quick access" will remove them now.

    The only one that became unpinned was the test folder.

    Next, see if clearing File Explorer history may allow you to afterwards.

    If not, then did you move the folders from their original "C:\Users\<username>" locations?

    If you did, then move the folders back to the default location, unpin them from quick access, and move them back if you like.
