Hi All - I have a problem with File Explorer.  Each time I view a picture or text document it constantly goes back to the Quick Access screen instead of staying in the current folder.  Is there a way to stop this?  It's most irritating.

Thanks - Zack

If you want to get rid of the new Quick Access/Home view in File Explorer, the link below has the procedure in details.

1. Open File Explorer, click on View tab in Ribbon and then click on Options.

2. Now to remove frequent folders and recent files list from Quick Access/Home view, uncheck following 2 options present under Privacy section:

Show recently used files in Quick Access
Show frequently used folders in Quick Access

It'll immediately remove these 2 sections from Quick Access view in File Explorer.

3. If you want to completely get rid of Quick Access/Home view from File Explorer, change the option "Open File Explorer to" from "Quick access" to "This PC" using drop-down list. It'll set the old This PC view as default in File Explorer and you'll always have disk drives page visible whenever you open File Explorer.
