    Remove/Hide folders in navigation pane in Windows Explorer


    I read the tutorial about Libraries, which doesn't cover my question. I do not use the Documents, Music, Pictures, or Videos folders and I 'd like to get them off the navigation pane, is there a way to do that?

    Hello rboppy, :)

    You might see if the tutorial below to remove "Folders" from This PC and the navigation pane may be what you're after.

    Thanks Brink,

    That looks like it might do the job, I removed the Music and Videos folders and sure enough they're gone from W.E.

    I'll remove the others and test to make sure the software that uses them can still find them.

    Thanks again!

it is really annoying to have to scroll way up in navigation pane to top (quick access items). I wish we could set some or all the items that are expanded to be collapsed when opening an explorer window.
