Oyetoke Tobi - Monday, April 03, 2017

Are you having “Unspecified Error” whenever you try to pin folders or files to Quick Access on Windows 10? If yes, here’s how to fix it.

With the Quick Access folder in Windows 10 File Explorer, you can easily navigate through most and recently used folders/files quickly. The Quick Access is located at the left which makes it easier for you to browse through your most and recently used folders/files.

Sometime, however, the Quick Access might not be accurate enough to pin some of your recently or most used files/folders. So all you need to do is to manually pin folders/files you want in the Quick access. But recently, users are having an error saying “Unspecified Error” when they try to add folders to Quick Access manually.



Don’t panic, fortunately, there’s a simple fix for that error. So if you are having “Unspecified Error” when trying to pin Folders in Quick Access on Windows 10, here’s how to fix it.

Open the command prompt. You can simply do that by pressing the keyboard shortcuts Windows Key+R, type in “cmd” and press Enter. Ensure you close all opened file explorer.

Then copy and paste the below command into the command prompt and press Enter:

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

del /F /Q %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations\*

Or navigate to the below folders and delete all the files in them:

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations

Now to test it, restart the File Explorer, then try to pin folders in Quick Access manually.
