Pinning down your PC (and making it behave!)

By | February 19, 2024

This week I’ve got a quick tip for computer users, which should make it a lot easier for you to get to the files you need.

How to pin down those pesky folders…
If you use your computer a lot, you’re probably familiar with the list of folders in the left hand panel of File Explorer.  If you’re particularly observant, you might have noticed that some of those folders have a little pin icon next to them.

Those pins mean that those folders have been “pinned” (funnily enough) to the “Quick Access” menu.  This makes it very easy to access those folders instantly, from wherever you might be in File Explorer.

If there’s a pinned folder that you don’t use very often, you can unpin it by right-clicking on the pin and choosing “Unpin from Quick Access” in the menu that appears.  Or to add a folder to that list, simply right-click on the folder in File Explorer and choose “Pin to Quick Access” to pin it there.
