Cannot Pin Shortcuts, or Folders to Windows File Explorer Quick Access

When trying to pin a folder or a shortcut to the quick access in Windows File Explorer, received a non-descriptive popup stating Unspecified Error

To resolve this Navigate to:

C:\\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent

and delete all the files in the recent folder.

You will then need to recreate any pinned folders or shortcuts in Quick access
