Add or Remove Folders from This PC in Windows 10/8.1


  1. Came across this post while searching how to get rid of those annoying folders and it worked perfectly, even with the Windows 8.1 April Update. Thank you!

  2. they are re-appearing after re-start. I used the .reg files found somewhere on the net.. Is it ok if i completely delete those registry keys?

  3. Jan. 12. 2015: Yeah, this. There is a PC Tweak freeware program that will do this, but it gets installed with C|Net “Opener” which is a POS that adds a whole bunch of popups and ads to your system as well as replaces Chrome with Vosteran search engine. Crapola.

  4. I don’t have the Wow6432Node in my registry, although I’m running Windows 8.1 64-bit. So deleting the 1st key (for desktop in my case) didn’t make any difference.

  5. That didn’t remove the links on navigation pane though. Please share the link if you have written about removing those or could write.
