Add and Remove Favorites in File Explorer Home in Windows 11

Starting with Windows 11 build 22593, Quick access in File Explorer (Win+E) is now called Home. The name Quick access has been repurposed for the pinned/frequent Folders section, and Pinned files is now called Favorites to align with Office and OneDrive. Recent and pinned files displayed in Home are now searchable using the search box in File Explorer even if they are not local files, so you can find Office files recently shared with you.

Home in the navigation pane is the default homepage of File Explorer (Win+E) that allows you to quickly access and view your pinned locations, Quick access (pinned/frequent folders), Favorites (pinned files), and Recent files from one location.

You can Add to Favorites and Remove from Favorites files you want in File Explorer Home.

This tutorial will show you how to Add to Favorites and Remove from Favorites in File Explorer Home for your account in Windows 11.
