I am struggling to remove the Desktop shortcut (highlighted by the red arrow in the image) from the Quick Access section in Windows 10 Explorer.

Although I have the option to “Unpin from Quick Access” when right-clicking the shortcut, clicking on it doesn’t seem to do anything and the shortcut remains in place.

I want to find out why this issue persists and how to resolve it.

Windows 10 Version 1803 Build 17134.765
