Z51-Why is my quick access empty when using the File Explorer (Windows 10)

Hi everyone,

 

After upgrading my Lenovo Z51 to Windows 10, the file explorer also has a slight change to it. There's a new section called Quick Access, which I assume is used to replace the Favorites section that was once present on Windows 8 and 8.1.

 

Quick Access worked for me, though it was kind of irritating how it would always automatically add the last folder I visited under it. However, about a day or two after I upgraded I noticed that this happened:

For some reason quick access has been empty ever since then and I can't seem to add anything to it. I even tried adding things manually, but apparently all I get is an error message. For example, if I pinned the downloads folder, I get an error popup saying "C:\Users\[MyName]\Downloads already exists. 

 

How can I fix this?

 

Mod edit:  Added Model # to Subject for improved visibility/
