How to Customize The Windows 10 File Manager Quick Access Menu

This guide will show you how to customize the Quick access section of the Windows 10 File Manager.

There isn’t a whole lot you can change in the Quick Access menu, but we’ll show you what you can do to make it work best for you.

Open a File Explorer window, right-click on the Quick access ‘link’ and then select Options

Each time File Explorer it has to display something, from here you can decide what that something is. The default is the Quick access section. Click the ‘drop-down’ menu and choose which section you want to make as the default view when File Explorer opens.

In the Privacy section you can choose whether or not you want to display your recently used files and/or frequently used folders in the Quick access list.

You can add any folder on your Windows 10 computer to the Quick access list – just right-click on that folder and select Pin to Quick access

That folder will now stay in your Quick access list until you ‘unpin’ it.
