    Disable Zip File Compressed Folders File Explorer


    Hi all...Using Win10 Pro x64. I would like to disable windows showing .zip files in explorer as a folder...When you highlight it the contents inside the .zip are shown in the right pane view. I've scoured the net and found ways for Win7(which I did disable .zip folders on my other Win7 machine) and Vista, perhaps 8 too but I don't want to risk trying a method for older versions of windows. Has anyone been able to find a solution/reg hack or whatever to disable .zip folder?

    Thanks..........Jet

    Hello Jet, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The tutorial below can help show you how to. It's the same in Windows 10.

    Your solution worked like a charm. By browsing windows forums(here, window7) I've discovered you're quite a registry hack authority.
    Thanks again Brink. Next I am going to tackle the THIS PC items so my navigation pane don't look like a long cash register receipt. I've located your solution for that as well.
