Windows File Explorer always pins folders that I frequently use to Quick Access. At the moment, I like my quick access bar how it is and I don't want it to be changed at all. Right now I have to manually remove the auto-added folders from quick access to keep it how I want it.

How can I stop file explorer from automatically adding folders to quick access?

Search for File Explorer Options and uncheck Show frequently used folders in Quick Access under Privacy. Press apply and then OK.
