Windows 10: Remove Quick access from Navigation Pane in Windows 10
In that case, go ahead and export the two registry keys below, and upload them here. I'll be happy to take a look at them to see what may be wrong.
Here you go, I hope this is what you want:
Ok. Found the problem. You need to repeat steps 1 to 8, then restart the computer afterwards. It was still set to show.
I did not do that because I saw this:
If you have a 64-bit Windows 10
, then repeat steps 4 to 7
above for the registry location below.
This step is to add or remove Quick access from the "Open" and "Save as" type dialogs in 64-bit Windows 10.
This step is not for 32-bit Windows 10.
That is for to do step 10 if you have a 64-bit Windows 10. If you have a 32-bit Windows 10 installed, then you wouldn't do step 10.
However, you would need to do step 8 on both 32-bit or 64-bit to remove Quick access.
Thanks Shawn When I was looking at your request for the reg files I saw that the one in root wasn't done and I thought maybe I misread the Tut..LOL But it is now out of the navigational pane but the folders are still there but I think that maybe they should be..
Thank you for your help. I appreciate it!
You're most welcome.
The other folders are for "This PC", and are not related to "Quick access". For that, you can use the tutorial below to remove them.

I registered here just to respond to this thread and ask a question:
What you describe (setting the attribute to 0xA0600000) does indeed hide Quick Access. It also breaks something important...
Once Quick Access is hidden I can no longer drag and drop files into folders in the Navigation (left) pane. If I try to do so, a little red circle with a line through it appears and the file will not drag/drop.
Do you know of any workaround to prevent this loss of functionality?
Hello @NoelC, and welcome to Ten Forums.
I'm afraid that there's not a way that I've found to prevent drag and drop to navigation pane not working if you remove Quick access from the navigation pane.
However, you can still cut and paste files to folders in the navigation pane.
