    The Videos, Pictures, and Music folders won't stay deleted. Programs that try to access them can request they be created if they don't exist, and a variety of programs do this
    If programs try to access/re-create them then this is a different story but I would think there's options in those programs to allow you to re-direct the output where you want to save.

    For Windows 8.1, here's a short video:
    Note: The reg file used is from shawn's tut.

    Since as I said, I don't use the Windows folders or libraries, I of course employ those options in programs like iTunes, Picasa, XBMC, etc. The folders still get regularly recreated despite removing all folders from all Windows Libraries. I don't know which programs are responsible for doing this, but it's something I've observed consistently for years. These folders simply will not stay deleted for the long term, and this was true in Windows 7 as well as 8.

    Hi topgundcp, Your video shows exactly what I want to achieve...It has worked for me in the past but for some reason it does not work this time. I am going to try going through the process again following your video.

    Hi topgundcp, I have just run the reg file from Brinks tutorial again and re-booted my PC but Video was still showing in Libraries navigation pane and the right hand pane...however when I tried to see if I could delete Video in the navigation pane it actually worked this time and removed Video from Libraries and has stayed deleted after a re-boot.

    I am very happy...Thanks for all your help and Brink too.
