Default Have you spotted the other W10 Control/folder switch panel?

As far as I know nobody has given a shout out on this semi hidden W10 feature,
Its a Tick box menu to reveal Folder links in the sidebar margin space above the Windows Icon direct access "Icon" link to many familiar folders and Features and some advanced items too
All I have showing there currently is my profile mugshot (account),the Power Icon and the Windows Settings Cog
Now the reveal to the advanced settings Right Click on the Settings cog icon and then select Personalize this list on the menu.
and Voila! > There are 9 Folder items on this new page List All disabled bar Settings

I have had a look at this Bedstor and found the items you mention but not sure if I click the off boxes on, what advantage I gain from it and where they appear in my set up ( Win 10 Home, 64, latest version).

The other way is to display these as shortcuts In the Start menu,desktop or the Taskbar which has its own Settings cog icon...Only icon from the optional sidebar list I have in the Taskbar since the Original W10 edition is File Explorer which is unpinnable! NOTE Does Not show on the Start Menu Index list, hence it has to be kept in view > If I lose it then I can retrieve by keying it manually in the search box then right clicking for the "Pin" menu
PS The W10 File Explorer App contains the aforementioned Desktop,Downloads, Documents and Pictures Folders

Arrow Re: Have you spotted the other W10 Control/folder switch panel?

Some of these items are also listed on the Right click Windows Icon (menu) .
Wish list items:
1 thing I use often listed there is the Task Manager App,which I think should be in the Sidebar as its a Key item. 2ndly it is listed under Windows System on the Windows menu also via a keyword in the Run box
Another awkward App on Windows 10 (I use sometimes) is Regedit which is a direct Run box command >Not listed!
