  1. Navigation Pane Customizer may come handy and I recommend this tool than fiddling around Registry 😉

    But Computer isn’t on the list of the tool, Still we go to registry and your post is good tip to digg in to. Thanks.

  2. 1 – I have checked that tool, it doesn’t works for Computer and network options, I confirm it.

    In the above image, even I check and apply settings for Computer & Network, explorer just restarts and things are as usual, so the tool doesn’t makes any sense.

    2 – Right-click + Delete = POINTLESS!

    3 – Works for Network and Computer links, so far we’ve given proof for them in our articles as well.

    This wasn’t working for me. The reason is the instructions above are slightly misleading. For 64 bit users you must do the modification to BOTH registry paths listed above. Then you’re all set.
