    I applied this some time ago. Everything has been great until today when I created a new user account. I ran windows explorer as this new user and got the message in step 8 of the tutorial. Pretty confusing, because by that time I'd forgotten all about this change. I eventually remembered applying this registry patch, and realised explorer in the new account was opening to the default quick access, hence the message. Set explorer to open at My PC and I could then run explorer.

    The tutorial does say it's changing the behaviour for all users so it's obvious this fix stops any future user accounts using explorer unless you remember to change the default setting. But it can be pretty confusing if you create an account for someone else many months later and they can't use explorer.

    Hello arnoldh,

    Yeah, it would be nice if explorer would still open despite that.

    Hello Brink,

    Unfortunately when you get to my age it's difficult to remember what happened an hour ago. It's even more of a challenge several months later

    I'm having a problem with this tutorial because I don't have HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder listed.

    Registry.reg

    Any help with this problem?

    Thanks

    I just saw that my first reply did not show the picture I want to. Sorry 'bout that.

    Hello CR,

    It's located at "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{66742402-F9B9-11D1-A202-0000F81FEDEE}" instead of "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.CLSID\{66742402-F9B9-11D1-A202-0000F81FEDEE}".

    I don't understand your reply.

    The tutorial states go to:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder

    I do NOT have this listed at CLSID (see picture in my post).

    I only have: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{66742402-F9B9-11D1-A202-0000F81FEDEE}".

    Sorry. You're screenshot shows a dot "." in front of CLSID. That's not the correct location. You'll need to scroll down past the list file extensions to find "CLSID" without a dot.

    Thanks

    Had no idea that there was more than one CLID. Learn something every day.

    Got it now, Thanks again
