  1. I now switched to Windows 10 x64, for the present being. Trying to get "LIBRARIES" removed completely from the Navigation-Pane from the Main Explorer window, File-Open, and Save-As menu's, WITHOUT the Library items being removed from the Explorer view pane (right side). Per my previous registry tweak for Windows 8.1x64. There are no registry tweaks on the internet that allow this for Windows 10, and the registry tweak for Windows 8.1x64 is the only one that works as intended and only available here on MSFN (all other registry tweaks on the internet completely remove Libraries, mine do not), but again my registry tweaks are solely for Windows 8.1x64 and do not completely remove the Libraries... So, this is an attempt to tweak the Explorer Navigation-Pane and Explorer-Pane Libraries, or at least hoping so. Though these options should inherently be within Windows itself, not Microsoft shoving their idealistic trash over to it's consumers. We need customizations and options to suit our individual way of productivity. This is what I discovered so far: ; NOTES: These specific keys, below, are associated with the Music Library in Windows 10 x64. There are TWO keys listed to a single library item, unlike Windows 8.1x64. The reason to test 1 Library is, once you find a solution for that Library then it ought to work for all. ; MUSIC LIBRARY: {1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE} {3dfdf296-dbec-4fb4-81d1-6a3438bcf4de} ; Values and Findings: ; 1. ; Controls show/hide in main Explorer window, SAVE-AS (Save), and File Open, but does not remove from "Libraries" pane: [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE}] ; 2. ; Controls show/hide in FILE-OPEN and SAVE-AS (Save) for both navigation and explorer pane, but does not control main Explorer window or "Libraries" dialog for both navigation-explorer panes: [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{3dfdf296-dbec-4fb4-81d1-6a3438bcf4de}] ; 3. ; Controls show/hide in main Explorer window, FILE-OPEN, SAVE-AS (Save) for both navigation and explorer pane, but does not remove from "Libraries" pane: [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE}] ; 4. ; Controls show/hide in main Explorer window, but does not remove from FILE-OPEN and SAVE-AS items listed in "Libraries," and "This PC" for both navigation and explorer pane: [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{3dfdf296-dbec-4fb4-81d1-6a3438bcf4de}] I tried my previous method of creating the DWORD HideMyComputerIcons and adding the corresponding Library coded below, which does work in Windows 10x64 to show/hide Library items within the Explorer-Pane view, but it's quickly overridden when one of the tweaks above is applied. The DWORD value of 0 (show) does not work is quickly overridden by the above tweaks. I've also tried HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, which does not work at all. ;[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideMyComputerIcons] "{3dfdf296-dbec-4fb4-81d1-6a3438bcf4de}"=dword:00000001 or ;[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideMyComputerIcons] "{1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE}"=dword:00000001 PS. I'm also trying to display "Quick Access" above the Libraries in the Explorer Pane view. So in essence when opening the Main Explorer window, the Explorer the Navigation-Pane will not display Libraries, but the Libraries will display in the Main Explorer pane (Right). Something like below: ---Quick Access (#count) Whatever Folders that are listed (Pinned/Favorite) in Quick Access ---Libraries aka Folders (#count) Desktop | Documents | Downloads | Music | Pictures | Videos ---Devices and drives (#count) C drive | D drive | F drive | G drive | H drive | Y drive | X drive | etc... ---Network locations (#count) NAS1 | NAS2 | NAS3 | SERVER1 | SERVER2 | SHARE1 | SHARE2 | etc... Suggestions?
  2. There is no issue, just looking to completely disable the feature.
  3. Anyone know how to disable Windows split screen (Side-by-Side) mode?
  4. Any other AquaSnap users out there? Please vote for this feature... https://nurgo-software.uservoice.com/forums/277205-help-us-to-improve-aquasnap/suggestions/8874265-horizontal-aquasnap-in-1-3-or-1-4-screen-increment

  6. Using the above REG files did nothing and is also missing critical registry information. Though I found a reg file on AskAVG but that wasn't applying to my system and removing the entries as it ought to. Besides, MOST of these REG tweaks found on the internet actually DELETE the LIBRARY keys under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\." That's just annoying. So I just created a new reg file and works great, I can now have the libraries removed from the nav pane and still have any particular LIBRARY Folder I chose to display within the explorer window above the drives. I'm also certain I could add additional Folders, besides LIBRARY folders, to the Explorer pane as well. . FOLDER INFO The LIBRARY folders are listed as the following within the registry. {1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE} - Music Folder {374DE290-123F-4565-9164-39C4925E467B} - Downloads Folder {3ADD1653-EB32-4cb0-BBD7-DFA0ABB5ACCA} - Pictures Folder {A0953C92-50DC-43bf-BE83-3742FED03C9C} - Videos Folder {A8CDFF1C-4878-43be-B5FD-F8091C1C60D0} - Documents Folder {B4BFCC3A-DB2C-424C-B029-7FE99A87C641} - Desktop Folder . NAVIGATION PANE (Libraries) Hide "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000000 Show "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000001 . Updated registry file to remove LIBRARIES from the explorer navigation pane. This will also HIDE/SHOW libraries from within the Save-As and Save-To window prompts! . EXPLORER PANE (Libraries) To hide / show a specific LIBRARY folder within the Explorer window navigate to the registry below and change the DWORD value from 1 (Hide) to 0 (Show). HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideMyComputerIcons Sample registry file . DOWNLOADS (Windows 8.1 x64, these are not tested on Windows 8 or 32-bit) Hide-Explorer-Pane-Library-Folders.reg Hide-Nav-Pane-Explorer-Libraries.reg Show-Explorer-Pane-Library-Folders.reg Show-Nav-Pane-Explorer-Libraries.reg
  7. These numskuls at M$ are at it again?! Doesn't surprise me when the company is full of dimwitted neanderthals. This crap occurred the day Windows 10 rolled out, and most everyone I know who hadn't wanted Windows 10 had to roll back to their previous version of Windows 7/8, which caused enormous problems. As a future note to others take a look and read about the AEGIS-Voat script and apply it. The script prohibits Microsoft the ability to upgrade Windows 7/8 to Windows 10 and blocks some known privacy invasive KB patches. M$ reserves absolutely zero right for the crap they are forcing upon their customers. Absolutely NONE. Furthermore, people need to wake up (needing a swift kick in the head) and need to consult with their local state representatives and those in other countries need to contact their representatives.
  8. As title states... Office 2016 / 365 - Unresponsive UI / Ribbon. Anyone experience the same issues? I can't seem to find a fix and tired of the M$ merry-go-round technical support.
  9. screenshot displays exactly what i do not want.

  11. Those options remove from both the nav and drive panel. image posted for what i'm looking to achieve.
  12. I know the "Library" shortcuts can be removed from within explorer, but looking to just remove these from the navigation panel and not the main Folders, Devices, and drives. Possible? FIXED ... explanation of issue and created registry files to share. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/175165-explorer-libraries-nav-panel/?do=findComment&comment=1121206
  13. There must be a way to clear any entries that were related to Ultimate... if they even do exist, still it's a step in the correct direction and may not be easy. Also, as previously noted... I have valid licenses for all versions of Windows. I read so many posts about licenses etc... etc, and so many people/guppies out there micromanaging Microslum. It's completely irrelevant and frankly no one's business.
  14. Though your answer has logic going from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 7 Professional, but doesn't explain why it's not allowing an upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional.
