TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Win 10 Quick Access Blew up!

I used my favorites in Win7 and Win8 because it gave me one click access to commonly used items.

Well, here comes Win10, and the Quick Access concept.  Nice enough, but not the same.  But it contained my migrated favorites, so I was not too unhappy.  But, the other day, “something” happened, I am sure I did it, but I will be damned if I can figure out what.  Bottom line was that my single-click links were no longer there.

Sadness.

Today I had a little time to dig in and figure it out.  After reading a ton of blog-o-sphere stuff, and some useless Technet and equally useless forum postings, I found something that I figured couldn’t hurt to try:

Run command prompt as admin and type the following command:


del %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\*

Happiness.  Now my stuff is back.  All I need to do know is figure out what, why, when, and how.
