Windows 10 has some flashy features such as the return of the Start menu, the integration of Cortana and Continuum. However, it also has some new additions that may not be as obvious. This week, the company put the spotlight on one of them, Quick access, which will help users find their files and folder faster.
While people with older versions of Windows have the option of pinning folders in one location, via Favorites, Microsoft says that few of them took advantage of that feature. So the development team came up with Quick access to Windows 10 in File Explorer. The company said:
Quick access will show the four most frequently used folders below the ones that have been pinned. The most recently accessed files and folders can be seen below the pinned and most frequent folders. Microsoft adds:
People who don't wish to see their most recent or frequently used files can go to the View menu and then choose Options to turn off this option. Pinned folders will still be visible in File Explorer.
