    How to Add or Remove Network in Navigation Pane of File Explorer in Windows 10

    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Network in the navigation pane of File Explorer for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove Network in the navigation pane.

    Note   Note
    If you remove Network from the navigation pane, it will also remove the default Network desktop icon (if turned on). If you like, you can still create your own Network folder shortcut to use instead though.

    If you add Network to the navigation pane, it will also add the default Network desktop icon (if turned on).

    4. If you have not already, you will need to first change the owner of the ShellFolder registry key in the left pane to be the Administrators group. (see screenshot below step 3)

    5. If you have not already, you will need to second set permissions of the ShellFolder registry key in the left pane to "Allow" the Administrators group "Full control". (see screenshot below step 3)

    6. In the right pane of ShellFolder, double click/tap on Attributes to modify it. (see screenshot below step 3)

    7. Do step 8 (remove) or step 9 (add) below for what you want.

    10. If you have a 64-bit Windows 10, then repeat steps 4 to 7 above for the registry location below.
    Note   Note
    This step is to add or remove Network from the "Open" and "Save as" type dialogs in 64-bit Windows 10.

    This step is not for 32-bit Windows 10.


    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}\ShellFolder

    11. When finished, close Registry Editor.

    12. Sign out and in of Windows or restart the PC to apply.




    That's it,
    Shawn

    I would, but they wouldn't work since steps 4 and 5 must be done first.

    Use find in regedit. It will make this much faster. Under edit menu or CTRL + F.

    Hello Adiy, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It looks like you didn't do steps 4 and 5 yet.

    Attributes


    Brink,

    I followed all of the steps and was not able to see the "attributes" file under ShellFolder. Any suggestions? I would like to remove both "network" and "this pc" Thanks
