Clear Quick Access in File Explorer

Is there an option to clear the contents (files listed) when Quick Access is selected in Files Explorer?

Currently I can only select and right click->remove from QA 20 entries at a time.

Sorry!

I found it in Folder Options -> General Tab: Clear File Explorer history.

Don't need or want all this clutter in Windows Explorer's Navigation pane either:

Microsoft, there is such a thing as "INFORMATION OVERLOAD".

 

Stop messing about, and LISTEN to your customers before you lose them all.

In the File Explorer Options under Privacy, you can turn this feature off

Please note: The clutter that I am referring to is shown under "This PC" and there is no provision under "File Explorer Options" to clear it. As it shows in your picture that option is for "Quick Access".
