    Windows 8.1

    Hi Brink, I am sure we have discussed this before, maybe on another thread. Windows has probably through an update, put libraries back in my File Explorer. I have tried a few or the more likely of your .reg files, but don't seem to be able to kill them this time, which i would really like to do. Any ideas?

    Hello Jon,

    Yeah, the latest Windows Updates have been resetting "This PC" back to default causing everyone to have to reapply their customizations again.

    It sounds like you may need to make sure that step 1 is done again as well. It would have to be done before the .reg files would be able to change those registry entries to add Libraries back.
