Windows 11 Explorer: can't order quick access items in the left pane

Occasional Visitor

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.

I don't understand how something this simple isn't obvious to them.
