How to delete Quick Access History in Windows 10 [Updated]

Quick Access is the option used to quickly access our favorite folders or files. But they hadn't

included an option that asks us is this files need to be displayed in quick access or not, atleast it

would be better for some if they had designed without quick access as well. But they hadn't done

that, instead they did a program inside windows which will automatically display the recently 

opened files in quick access of Windows 10.

So,if you wish to delete quick access history of Windows 10 or clear quick access history of

Windows 10 (i think both are same😕) here is an guide on how to do.. Remember you don't need

registry or gpo to carry out the following task.
