Anyone else still getting "Folders" at the top in This PC?

Sometimes, but I take them out with this

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HomeFolderDesktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders\{3134ef9c-6b18-4996-ad04-ed5912e00eb5}][-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HomeFolderDesktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders\{3936E9E4-D92C-4EEE-A85A-BC16D5EA0819}]

Didn't work. Quick Access no longer has anything listed under it but "Folders" is still in This PC.. Oh I'm using Windows 10 64-bit by the way..

You're talking about in the Files pane?  Yeah, all the "Folders" are still there for me.

 

Normally I don't use that area much, save for checking whether any disks are near full.

I strongly prefer to have the "Folders" gone. http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/6015-pc-folders-add-remove-windows-10-a.html gets rid of it but, I was hoping ONE development has gotten to the point where it could handle the task.. I miss Favorites too. Quick Access is alright but, if you want your Profile Folder pinned there, you have to manually set the green shirt dude as the folder icon just so that it is correct.

This does work but the link I posted will do the same thing in a .reg file so, if you're a lazy kid like me, it'll only take a few seconds :P I've used both this & that .reg file before but, i was really banking on ONE being able to do it this time around. Maybe further down the road..

Watch out for breaking SFC system integrity.

 

I've found that removing some of the keys leads to SFC reporting problems, and SFC /SCANNOW putting them back.

Really? I spoke too soon.. I admittedly haven't used them since TP some time ago.. I don't know what's changed since then..

I'm not sure exactly which ones.  I do know that I can eliminate all the extraneous stuff from the Navigation pane on the left (except Quick Access) without perturbing SFC.

I personally have no need for such configuration as I only use a few directories & am willing to manually open each one in multiple windows. Also, I use n2ncopy for large copy & paste tasks. Nice left pane config though ;)

This does not affect SFC /Scannow.

Nice tip, but that's still one small blue star too many.  :(

 

-Noel

I noticed this page earlier and i have now tested it and i can confirm that it does remove the star too!

 

http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-hide-and-remove-quick-access-icon-file-explorer-in-windows-10/

 

But remember to Configure the File Explorer to open This PC instead because i believe this fix will break WIN+E if you dont.

Try dragging and dropping something in the Navigation (left) pane.  If that works I'll be interested.  All tweaks discovered so far break drag and drop.

That's good.  Something in a list I ran much like yours did break it - twice - and I've just not had the time to figure out exactly what did it.
