Clearing links from "Quick Access" in the default profile

Hello, I am setting up a default profile for RDS users, I hid all folders except the desktop and downloads from Explorer, there is a problem with "Quick Access" there are automatically created links to the documents and images folders, I could not find anything related to this in the registry, how can I clear it completely "Quick access" from links or replace your own?

    Hello @Suleyman Muhammadov

    I hope this is what you looking for:

    1) In File Explorer, click the File menu, and then select “Change folder and search options.”


    2) In the “Privacy” section at the bottom, disable the “Show frequently used folders in Quick access” option.

    3) You can now add your own favorite folders to the quick access list by dragging-and-dropping them there or by right-clicking a folder and choosing the “Pin to Quick Access” option.

    To remove a folder from quick access, right-click it and select the “Unpin from quick access” option.

    no, I removed these checkmarks through the registry in the default profile template, I need to remove the link to images and documents from the quick access for the profile template in C:\Users\Default so that users do not need to unpin them
