Windows 10 Quick Access to folders

Quick access is part of File Explorer, and as the name implies, it provides quick access to folders. This usually refers to commonly used folders. In Windows 10, we have typical folders in Quick Access for documents, pictures, music, desktop, downloads and videos.

File explorer can be found in the task bar.

Quick Access is on the left side below the ribbon. We can add some of our own folders. Let’s walk through an example. We’ll click on the documents folder in Quick access.
