Quick access or System folder creation from installer

Hi guys,

I would like to craete an item in the Windows QuickAccess bar or even better a system folder (see attached pic)

Did anyone do that already in NSIS, of course I can do it manually and then execute the same commands in the installer, but if already someone has experience then it would be much better.

Quick access contains folders from two sources: Recently used and pinned. Recently used is just that; recently used. While it is probably possible to programmatically pin a folder, you should not do it. Only the user should pin folders.

The "system" folders are registered in the registry but it does not really make sense to add a normal filesystem folder there. If you are implementing something like dropbox or onedrive you can start @ https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib.../dn889934.aspx
