I can't reorder the quick access items in the right pane of the windows explorer through drag and drop. It's weird, because if i drag and drop one of them to the top, it works, but if i want to place an item in the middle of the list it doesn't work.

@juliangzr Yes, this is very frustrating. The whole point of having a Quick Access folder list is to make folders easy to find but if you can't sort them you end up spending seconds scanning down an ever-growing list of randomly named folders.
I just upgraded to Windows 11 and it was the first thing I checked to see if it had been fixed. No joy there.

It worked even in windows 11 for me until last week and i used it intensively. Now it does not work more. I think it's a bug related with some update.

So the weirdest hack worked, I was messing around with folder options and found that if I don't select "show all folders" (https://drive.google.com/file/d/167z2YtaFqf6xMHnCbYCDy4qwlOQQaaH5/view?usp=share_link) the view looks very wonky but at least you can reorder your quick access items.

Nice, simple get-around until someone catches up with their work at MS. Need to mention that the manual sort stays sorted if you reset to 'Show all folders' after manually sorting, fortunately.

@njerisanyu Thanks! Great tip! This worked for me, after many frustrating attempts to re-order quick access items!

This hack did re-order the folders in my navigation pane. It placed the quick access folders below my One Drive Folders, and created a line separating the two. This was a little annoying, but I have adjusted, and it is worth the visual change in order to be able to reorder the quick access folders.
