    It's a process because I have to unlock and relock the registry keys via a 3rd party program to remove Quick Access because there wasn't a way to hide them from the side menu when Windows 10 was first released. Are you telling me that there is now indeed a way to do this just via a .reg file?

    Yes, only hiding network requires taking ownership of the registry, all others work just fine, run as admin of course.

    Ah so to this date there is not a way to take ownership, hide things, then restore ownership via a .reg yet?

    No, not without installing some third party tool like SetACL. I always have to do it manually.

    Check out RegOwnershipEx. It doesn't require you to install anything.

    Yes, I know that one, but it still requires me to do it one by one, I would prefer something to do it all at once.
