    Hello Shawn Brink,
    I have taken your registry edits and put them in a batch file that:
    1. Gives you a menu to add or delete the Google Drive from/to the Navigation Pane.
    2. Handles 32 or 64 bit systems.
    3. Uses the standard ICON from a the Google Context Menu DLL.
    4. Finds the path in the Google Sync Configuration if the default path is not found.
    5. Restarts the explorer.


    Please feel free to post this solution.

    I was only able to test on Windows 10, 32 and 64 bit systems.
    Text parsing the Google Sync Configuration .db database may not be perfect as I only tested with one .db file.

    @RobMahn,

    After testing, the .bat file worked great for me as well.

    I added your .bat file as Option One in the tutorial. Great job. :)

    Hi Brink, any chance this .Bat file has made it impossible to remove the User Folder from the Explorer Pane? , Or has a recent Windows Update done that? as it seems I noticed The User Folder back again after trying the .bat ( it worked fine, found mine on E:\Google Drive ) but even your Remove User From Explorer.reg File no longer seems to work ...or perhaps I need an updated version of the one I have always used?

    Yes that one and 6105 (Folders in My PC view too) , I have used both for a year or two no issues , both are also in my
    "Merged 10Forums Reg.Files".reg file I usually run after each Cumulative Update with your "Fixes" that I usually use.

    I now have a feeling it has something to do with "Show All Folders" which I thought in the past I was able to have on? and see Control Panel and the Recycle Bin without seeing my User Folder and other stuff eg desktop folders . With Libraries and Quick Access my User Folder is wasted spaced I think and just extra scrolling that is needed. So I now think I am just probably wrong , they do work , just not if Show All Folders is On , I need to play around with the Settings some more I think.

    Thanks for your Help as Usual....

    If you have "Show all folders" turned on, then yeah it'll show the User folder under the "Desktop" group in the navigation pane.

    Hi - I am new here and came across this thread. My Google Drive is located on a different drive than my C Drive, X:\Google Drive. I have been able to add Google Drive to Explorer but it points to C:\User\Google Drive. I ran the batch file and it does not locate my sync folder. How do I point to my X Drive?
    Thank you.

    Hello @GNT, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Here's a 32-bit version .reg file set for a "X:\Google Drive" location. If you need a 64-bit version instead, just let me know.
