    Stop Creating Recycle Bin and System Information in USBs

    Hi Guys,

    I hope I've asked this in the right channel.

    Through googling, I found a tutorial on how to prevent Windows from creating Recycle Bin and System Information folder in USBs by using the Group Policy Editor. Since I'm on Windows 10 Home edition, I do not have the Group Policy Editor. Therefore, I found another tutorial to create it. Unfortunately, I am having problems:

    1. In the newly installed Group Policy Editor, I need to navigate to

    Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Search.

    The thing is, I can only go as far as Windows Components, there is no Search. Does anyone know what I should do to proceed?

    2. If there is another way to stop Windows 10 Home creating Recycle Bin and System Information folder in external drives, please advise. I would be very grateful.

    Hope to hear from you Guys soon.

    Thank you.


    My apologies Guys,

    I have since found an alternative.

    Thank you for your patience.
