    How to Add or Remove 'Pin to Quick access' on Context Menu in Windows 10


    information   Information
    Windows 10 replaced Favorites from previous Windows with Quick access. The Quick access page is the shortest route to files you've been working on and folders you often use.

    Windows 10 allows you to be able to Pin to Quick access and Unpin from Quick access locations now. These locations include local and network folders, drives, libraries, OneDrive, This PC, Recycle Bin, etc..., but files and apps cannot be pinned to Quick access.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove 'Pin to Quick access' from the context menu of all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

    Thanks so much for this. For whatever reason I wasn't able to find any Keys or Values relevant to removing 'Pin to Quick access' from context menus in Registry Editor, yet this worked. However, even after installing your file of registration entries, I am still unable to find the directories (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\pintohome and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\pintohome) that are listed if one opens the file with notepad. How come?!

    Hello Anton,

    The remove download will delete those registry keys, so that would be why you're not finding them.

    LOL! That makes sense, though I don't remember seeing them beforehand. Probably an issue with my memory

    Sorry, but that question would be best posted in a new thread since it's not related to this tutorial.
