First disable Quick Access and then r-enable it and see if it helps.

If not, then open File Explorer and paste the following folder paths in the address bar and hit Enter.

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations
Once the folder is opened, press Ctrl+A to select all its contents. Now right-click and select Delete, to  delete all the files in the folder.

Do the same for both the above-mentioned folders.

Restart your Windows 10 computer and see if it has helped fix the problem.
