I accidentally click on use OneDrive to backup my documents while installing Windows 11. When I got inside the OS, I can’t move the folders to another location (at least for Pictures and Documents). When I got a solution to fix it, another one comes up showing me that I cannot pin them to Quick Access. Here’s the solution to fix both of them if you ever encountered.

Can't move folder because there is a folder in the same location that can't be redirected. Access is denied.

  • Win + R -> regedit
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
  • Double click on key:
    • Personal to change Documents
    • Desktop to change Desktop
    • My Music to change Music
    • My Pictures to change Pictures
    • My Videos to change Videos
    • has value %USERPROFILE%\Downloads to change Downloads
  • Restart your PC

Can’t pin anything to Quick Access.

  • Search -> cmd -> Run as administrator
del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\*
del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\*
del /F /Q %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations\*
  • Restart your PC
