You can Pin to Quick access and Unpin from Quick access locations. These locations include local and network folders, drives, libraries, OneDrive, This PC, Recycle Bin, etc... Files and apps cannot be pinned to Quick access.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Pin to Quick access context menu for all users in Windows 11.

Hello, :)

Search your registry for any instances of a pintohome shell key within the HKCR key group to see if you may have some stray.

There's nothing there either. I didn't delete anything myself.
There are these entries:

If you remove 'Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\pintohome', everything works.

Interesting. I don't have that key on my system with a clean install of Windows 11.

Was this an upgrade to Windows 11 from Windows 10? If so, it appears to be a left over remnant.

I have that key, and this was a clean install of 11 to a brand new SSD. Something's weird here.

The remove .reg doesn't work on this clean install that has the key mentioned above, even after restart. Should I try it again after removing that key?

Thank you Dan. I've added the "Folder" option to the REG files to update them. :)

Hi,
Think this is why it worked for me

Code:
rem Disable frequent/recent items in Explorer Quick Access
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer /v ShowFrequent /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer /v ShowRecent /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Thank you Dan. I've added the "Folder" option to the REG files to update them. :)
Okay. The new version works on the clean install that natively has the above-mentioned key.

Thanks, Shawn.

I'm not sure I understand why your (@Brink) install is missing a key that two or three installations (above) have. Any idea?

I'm not sure I understand why your (@Brink) install is missing a key that two or three installations (above) have. Any idea?

After more research...

The Windows Insider Dev desktop installation doesn't have it, but does have these:
  • [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shell\pintohome]
  • [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\pintohome]
  • [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Network\shell\pintohome]

A public release Windows 11 on a VM does, but not the other keys above.
  • [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\pintohome]

So it's only in the PRs of 11? (I'm sure I installed a PubRel when I got this new machine.)
