Take Away File Explorer’s Quick Access!

I’m a big fan of many of the new Windows 10 features. One annoys me though. I hate when you open File Explorer in Windows 10 and it defaults to a new Quick Access view that shows your most frequently accessed folders and recently viewed files.
There are those who actually prefer that. However, if you are not one of them, here is what you can do. Say you’d rather File Explorer defaulted to the “This PC” view found in Windows 8, here’s how you can make that happen:
  • Open File Explorer
  • Select View > Options from the Ribbon
  • This opens a Folder Options window
  • Click the “Open File Explorer” drop-down menu at top
  • FInally, select the “This PC” option
  • Click OK and you’re done!
