    Hiding QuickAccess Icon in Explorer thru Regedit not working.


    The attributes Dword cannot be changed from a0100000 to a0600000 or a0700000 as mentioned in all methods on the net.

    The ownership was first changed to Administrators (not Administrator, which is separately mentioned) as instructed in the method.
