    Not sure why you're pointing at this? I clearly mentionned "two times" so if you didn't notice, when you have a removable usb drive plugged in, an entry for it appear below the "this pc" ones..

    This is the same screen after running the registry update in @Brink's tutorial in post #2 and the repeated USB drive has gone and is only shown once under "This PC"

    If you mean something else perhaps you could upload a picture to explain.

    That's why I pointed to the tutorial. Use the option to disable drives showing in the navigation pane, and only the separate duplicate group for drives will no longer show in your navigation pane. It will only show once under "This PC".
