    THIS PC icons

    Hi guys,

    I have removed the music, documents, pictures etc folders from 'This PC' by deleting the reg keys. I followed the below link:

    Removing those ignoring folders from “This PC” in Windows10

    Is there any way of restoring these? I mistakenly took a backup of just the root I was in so it did not back up the whole registry!
