hey shawn, thanks for the help. I do have few more things i'd like to adjust if possible. is it possible to have the folders appear after the Harddrives? so on the left panel the folders I wanted will appear only after C, D E etc and on the right side it'll show folders below the HDDs.

Hello m18xr2, and welcome to Eight Forums.

There's nothing that can be done in the navigation pane (left panel), but you can do this below to have "Folders" below "Devices and drives" in This PC (right).

  • Click in View tab.
  • Click on Details in the "Layout" box in the ribbon.
  • In the This PC, click on the Type column header to have it's arrow pointing downward like the first screenshot below.
  • Click on Tiles in the "Layout" box in the ribbon.

Hope this helps, :)
Shawn

You're most welcome.

Personally, I like to keep "This PC" collapsed in the left navigation pane to not have it expanded anymore to save space, and just navigate in the main window or address bar.

Although it makes it easy for everyone to understand each other on these tutorials, sticking to the Windows assigned names, you can rename "This PC" or "Computer" to something of your choosing - like "Workhorse", "Laptop", or "Speedster"!

FYI... Installed the leaked Windows 8.1 RTM GA Rollup A x64 and it restored all the folders. Just run the reg file again to remove them.

Hello Hyperia, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Here's a few things to check. :)


Are you signed in an administrator account?

When you merged the .reg file from step 3, be sure that you approved all prompts at step 12.

If you had File Explorer open when you merged the .reg file, then close and open it to see the change.

Hyperia,

If you like, here's a .bat version of the .reg. You'll need to right click on the .bat and click on "Run as administrator" for it to work though. :)

Do you have a solution to change the colors of thumbnails?
