Quick Access

Quick Access Toolbar

Quick Access is a customizable location in the Windows 10 File Explorer that shows all the folders you browse most frequently and the files that you recently accessed.

Quick Access is based on the same algorithm as the good old Favorites list from previous versions of Windows. This list constantly changes, as you use different folders each day.

Despite the obvious advantages, some argue that the way this Quick Access list gets automatically populated is disturbing.
