    Folders under This PC

    The example screenshots are at the top of the tutorial on the first page under the info box.

    No. This would only add or remove the folder from showing in "This PC". It won't affect them anywhere else.
    Thanks for blowing me off. It would have been nice to have you answer my questions as dumb as they may sound to you. You must not be good at teaching those not as smart as you think you are.

    What are you talking about??

    You asked a question, and you got a prompt answer afterwards.

    Hi guys, this fix is not working in my Windows 10 x64, unfortunately. In fact, those six personal folders of mine were removed from "This PC" section of Navigation Pane and from the "Folders" section of right side explorer pane. But... they have disappeared from "my-user-name" personal folder located just above This PC section. My Windows 10 x64 installation is fully updated and functions perfectly. Any help, please?

    Hello ivbosh, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It worked properly then. Those folders are all tied together. If removed from This PC, it'll also remove them from under your user name area as well when you have "Show all folders" for navigation pane turned on.

    As a workaround, you could pin these folders to Quick access to have them available in it's navigation pane.

    Hello there,
    Thank you for the prompt response. I used to use "This PC Tweaker" some time ago with W8.1.3 successfully. A month ago I tried it again on the new W10 and first version of Windows 10 Manager with no success but full registry mess and reinstallation.

    Guys, I did it! It works 100%. Just use the latest Yamicsoft Windows 10 Manager 1.0.4. This is not a commercial!!! Read carefully the short help. Be very careful and do not use any "Remove" or "Remove all" command in the right, just "Disable". You must uncheck the two checked squares bellow the "This PC" pane on the left for each of the 11 folders in that pane. Only "This PC" section! In the upper right corner mark only "This PC" in the scrolling down menu. Restart the computer at the end! It's working!

    Hello,

    I'm running Windows 10 64-bit build 10240.

    As is the case, I have to reapply the "64-bit_Remove_All_user_Folders_in_This_PC.reg" file following each Windows update. After the last automatic update, I have a duplicate set of user folders - one without any names whatsoever;

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Folders.png 
Views:	70 
Size:	85.2 KB 
ID:	47743

    Reapplying the registry settings, nothing happens. I've granted myself explicit access to the all the keys in the registry file and reapplying the registry settings again happens.

    If anyone could offer advice that would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hello Viewtiful, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Did you restart the computer after merging the .reg file to fully apply?
