Quick Access/ Windows File Explorer slow/non-functional on Windows 10

Posted on August 29, 2020 | Filed in PC Tips

You click on Windows File Explorer and you see none of the usual PC locations and Quick Access shows a “working” status.

To fix do the following:

1. Run the “Command Prompt” app as an administrator. You can find the app (black icon with a C:) on it in the Start menu or for searching for “Command” in the search bar.
2. Once you are able to run the app type in the following and hit “Enter”:

del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

3. Close all instances of the File Explorer and launch it once more.

You should now see all your PC drives and locations.
