The Quick Access menu is the menu that appears in the file browser window with Windows 10 and looks at the left side of the screen and shows the places you visit continuously and permanently inside your computer from certain folders or even certain hard drives.
The idea of this menu is very similar to the Bookmarks list of internet browsers and reading programs, and it depends on saving places that you need to visit quickly or with one click to save you a lot of time, and in fact it can save a lot of time on Windows 10 systems and their disks.
But if you are a fan of extra privacy and want to hide the places you frequently visit on your computer and hide easy and fast access to these private folders, do not worry, there is a very quick and easy solution to be able to do this.
