    How do I remove items from the "Devices and drives" tab of "This PC"?


    I successfully followed a tutorial on how to add a system folder to Windows Explorer's navigation tree under "This PC" in order to add a Games folder similar to Windows 7. The only problem with the method used was that it ends up with the same shortcut under the "Devices and Drives" tab in "This PC". There were two people in the thread (How can I create a in Windows 8.1 without additional tools? - Super User) talking about the same issue but I am able to find no solution.
    Is there a fix for this, whether in Registry Editor (as long as it doesn't affect the shortcut in the navigation tree) or somewhere in the settings of Windows Explorer or Disk Management?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I apologize for the quick Solve mark, but apparently Winaero Tweaker has features for this. I was able to have a shortcut made that stays in the navigation tree.
