    I followed the steps in the this tutorial and was able to remove the Quick Access feature from the navigation pane of Windows Explorer - thanks for this.

    However, the Quick Access feature can still be seen in the navigation pane of the save dialog explorer when trying to save a file from a web browser, for example. Do you have any tips on how to remove the Quick Access feature from this location as well?

    Hello Rizzelet, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you have a 64-bit Windows 10, did you also do step 10?

    What web browser did this happen in? I'll test on my system.

    I wouldn't have thought it mattered, but I think that I may have forgotten to restart my web browser after making the registry changes. I just restarted my computer, and everything is working as expected now - your directions are bulletproof.

    Thanks again, and thanks for the quick reply, Shawn.

    Cannot import XXX.reg: Not all data was successfully written to the registry. some keys are open by the system or other process, or you have insufficient privileges to perform this operation.

    Hello ch3mn3y,

    This indicates that not all of steps 4 and 5 were done before trying to merge the .reg file.

    Double-whammy! Removes Quick Access clutter from the Navigation Pane AND prevents users from accidentally dragging and dropping folders inside others.

    Thanks.

    .
    I tried the tutorial using Command Prompt (Admin).

    I tried Step 4, "change the owner of the ShellFolder registry key in the left pane to be the Administrators group".

    Comment #1: When I clicked "Permissions", I did not see a multi-tabbed dialog, as in your screenshot. I saw only one tab "Security".

    Comment #2: I selected "Administrators" and then "Allow" and "Full Control". When I clicked "Apply", I got the message "Unable to save permission changes on ShellFolder. Access is denied."

    Please advise me how to proceed.

    Thanks.
