    Hello

    There's an easier way to hide this network icon in windows explorer, with a reg key (policy), without change any permission in registry :

    For all users :

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum]
    "{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}"=dword:00000001

    For current user :

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum]
    "{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}"=dword:00000001

    That's it ! Works under 7/8/8.1 too.

    Thank you Tim. :)

    That option will also remove the "Network" desktop icon, and not just from the navigation pane.

    It just depends if that matters for it to be a problem for some folks or not.

    Unable to save permission changes on ShellFolder


    Hi,

    I have performed this task (removing Network from Windows Explorer navigation) literally hundreds of times in Windows 7. It is even the same registry key, which I have memorized.

    I am attempting this on a new Windows 10 machine I am setting up. I am logged in as the local Administrator, which is my usual process.

    I am at the key in regedit and I cannot change permissions to allow Administrators full control - I get the error "Unable to save permission changes on ShellFolder. Access is denied."

    I am totally stumped as to where to go from here if even the Administrator account cannot change this.

    I thought about trying to take ownership in Advanced, taking it away from SYSTEM, but I am not sure if that will affect anything else down the line.

    Hello ozium, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    That's correct. You will need to take ownership of the "ShellFolder" key as noted in step 4 first before you will be able to change its permissions.
