    Yes I'm in an Administrator account. Ran it twice.


    Yes I'm in an Administrator account. Ran it twice. Same results. Opened and closed Registry editor 2x. Same results.

    Odd. The bottom of your screenshot showing the registry path is cut off, so I can't verify if that's the correct location to see if that may be the issue.

    It may look wrong, but the duplicate drives don't show up!


    It may look wrong, but the duplicate drives don't show up! I just inserted a bunch of removable drives and the duplicate problem isn't there. You fix worked, but it doesn't look like it did as you expected. lol

    Yep, removing that key will remove the drives. I'm glad you got it sorted.

    merrowland,

    Nope, it didn't get successfully merged.

    Were you able to approve all prompts to merge the .reg file?

    Are you currently signed in to an administrator account?

    Hello wbhworld, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The tutorial still works for me. If you haven't already, see if restarting the computer after merging the .reg file may help.

    wbhworld,

    Please go ahead and export the two keys below from your registry and upload them. I'll be happy to take a look at them to see if you may have some other registry entry add that could be causing the tutorial to not work for you.

    Code:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83}
    
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders

    hope this works, not that technical

    HKEY_CLASSES.reg
    HKEY-LOCAL.reg

    wbhworld,

    I found the problem. The {F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83} key didn't get deleted from your registry at the location below.

    Try the download from step 2 again being sure to approve all prompts to merge it.

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders
