    This works perfectly. Microsoft, in their good wisdom, decided to add a new folder however. I need some help. I found a website that tells me exactly how to remove it. I did it manually but going forward, I'd like to add it to my script.

    Anyone good enough with this kind of thing to add the needed lines?

    What is your purpose for doing this? Do you use Quick Access?

    No, I don't use it or the folder that are there via This PC. By doing this, this makes the folders specifically disappear from This PC.

    I prefer hiding, so you can easily restore, in case you change your mind.
    Code:
    rem Remove Network from Navigation Panel
    rem Take Ownership of the Registry key - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1l5ifYKefg
    reg add "HKCR\CLSID\{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}\ShellFolder" /v "Attributes" /t REG_DWORD /d "2962489444" /f
    
    rem 1 - Hide Quick access from This PC / 0 - Show
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" /v "HubMode" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    What are your folder options? Because mine shows much more and I am not sure which folders you are talking about. Do you mean it disabled Quick Access?

    As in the code above, what is selected as "Show" is shown and what is as "Hide" is hidden.
    I have also set Explorer to open to Downloads folder and I have changed its location to mine.
    Code:
    rem 2 - Open File Explorer to Quick access / 1 - Open File Explorer to This PC / 3 - Open File Explorer to Downloads
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v "LaunchTo" /t REG_DWORD /d "3" /f

    So is this different than what I have? I take control of both of these:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder



    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder


    And then change these values

    a0100000 to a0600000
