Access your favorite files and folders from the Quick Access area in Windows 10

Posted by Roger Hyttinen on

If you find yourself accessing certain folders regularly, rather than drilling down to find them, you can add them to the Quick Access area on the Navigation Pane. To add a folder, simply drag it to the position in the Quick Access area where you want it to be. You can also right-click on a folder and choose Pin to Quick Access from the contextual menu. A link is then placed in the Navigation pane and becomes available from any document window.
