Hi Shawn,

would appreciate if you can dig out a CLSID for "Advanced Security" command.

I am trying to create a context menu, right click on a file or folder so it would display the Advanced Security Settings for that file/folder

as if I am doing it a long way by
- right click on File/Folder->Properties->Security->Advanced
- or: Click on File/Folder then click Share on the menu of Windows Explorer, then click Advanced Security.
Hello topgundcp,

That would be a nice option to have. I'll look into it and post back if I can find an option for that. :)

I hope you guys know what to do next ;)



Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Windows.RibbonPermissionsDialog]

It would be nice, but since they are separate sites, they require separate registration. :(

Has anyone else found that the following item has stopped working in Windows 8.1?

Programs Folder and Fast Items

{865e5e76-ad83-4dca-a109-50dc2113ce9a}




I've had a shortcut to it in my Explorer Favorites since forever to give me access to All Programs, but now when I click on it, it does nothing. From the command line, I've tried the "shell:::" syntax from the first page of this thread, and it doesn't open anything. The "/e,::" syntax opens my Documents folder.

Anyone? All you have to do to try it is run the following:

explorer shell:::{865e5e76-ad83-4dca-a109-50dc2113ce9a}

I have a Windows 8.1 VM that last ran Windows Update in March 2015, and it works fine on it. So, sometime between then and now it broke on my main machine, which is up to date.

I noticed a while ago that the "Programs Folder" had been removed from Windows. It was never a real folder anyway, just an internally-generated folder-like display in File Explorer. In fact, it was actually the old-style Desktop Start Menu in a "folder" form. Its regular CLSID {7BE9D83C-A729-4D97-B5A7-1B7313C39E0A} no longer works either -- as a folder.

But those keys are still in the Registry, and so it might be possible to turn the Programs Folder on again by editing the keys. I never mess with the Registry myself unless I know exactly what to type there. It's the most dangerous thing you can do with Windows!

At any rate, the Programs Folder can still be made to appear as a cascading toolbar on the Taskbar. If you want to take the trouble (you only have to do it once) you can use the procedure I came up with some time ago to make a complete toolbar of your entire system. One of the many sub-toolbars that appear in it (the one called "Start") is the Programs Folder in toolbar form, and therefore is also the equivalent of the old Start Menu. I have that on my taskbar, and it still works.

My instructions for creating the complete-system toolbar are at

Thanks, but I don't want a toolbar. I want a folder view in Explorer. Can anyone confirm that this no longer works?

explorer shell:::{865e5e76-ad83-4dca-a109-50dc2113ce9a}

If so, Microsoft broke it with a Windows update sometime between March and now.

The following still works, but it's a flattened view of the Start Menu instead of a folder view:

Applications

{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}



Seeing as my Windows 10 in a VM is the same way, I'm guessing Microsoft broke it on purpose and decided to derp Windows 8.1 because why not?

ETA: Now this is truly hilarious. While I can create a shortcut to "Applications", I am not allowed to pin it to File Explorer Favorites as I've been doing with my "Programs Folder and Fast Items" shortcut.

Another alternative is to use the two Start Menu folders themselves.

Your user start menu folder is
C:\Users\(YourUserName)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

And the all-users start menu folder is
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Everything that was in the Programs Folder is in one of these two folders. (In fact, the Programs Folder WAS just a combination of these two.) They don't have CLSID's, but you can create shortcuts to them in the usual way, since they're REAL folders (not "generated" ones like the Programs Folder). You have to turn on the "show hidden folders" option to reach them, but as soon as you've made the shortcuts you can turn it off again.

Good idea. I created a library so I can view both at the same time. Wow, after 7 years, I finally found a use for libraries.

Aside: I've also been creating an AppData shortcut under File Explorer Favorites since Windows 7, as there are occasions when I need to deal with data hidden within. This is very easy in Windows 7 and 8.1; I type the location of the folder into the address bar, Windows displays its contents even though it's hidden, and I drag the folder icon from the address bar to the Favorites list to create the shortcut. It works the same in my Windows 10 VM, except the drag and drop appears to have no effect. Actually, it does create the shortcut, but Windows 10 transfers the hidden state of the folder to the shortcut and doesn't show the shortcut, which is less than helpful. You might expect toggling the display of hidden files and folders would immediately update the Favorites (Quick Access in W10) list, but you'd be wrong. You have to open a new Explorer window for it to appear in the list. You might also think you could remove the Hidden flag from the shortcut properties, but you'd have to find the shortcut file first, because invoking Properties on the item in the list resolves to the AppData folder. It's amazing how many things can go newly wrong with something so simple that always worked before.
