How to Remove Pin to Quick Access Option

To remove the Pin to Quick access option in Windows 10, which you’ll find in the context menu under the Open in new window option, follow the steps below:

Open the Run by pressing Windows + R. Type regedit and then press the Enter key. Hit Yes in the pop-up. You can see the Registry Editor on your Windows 10 PC.

Go to Hkey_Classes_Root > Folder > shell > pintohome.

Make a backup of the latter key or the entire Registry before proceeding.

Right-click on the pintohome key and then click on the “Delete” option.

Click the Yes button on the pop-up.

That’s all. You can now see the changes in the context menu.

Note: If you want to get the option back, restore the backup I suggested in the steps above.
