Disable "NEW FOLDER" link in explorer toolbar

HI EVERYBODY.
Perhaps nobody in the forum asked here for the same problem twice.

Earlier, you friends provide me two batch files to delete all new folders
either empty or full.

Can anybody please tell me how to disable the new folder button (red bordered)? If it is a registry edit, please tell me how to do so... or otherwise... PLEASE HELP ME.

I'm not sure about disabling that button, but why don't you just give him his own account if you're going to let him use the computer.

But the other drives where data are stored are accessible from either user account

Hello Arc,

You can change the permission levels to "Deny" only his standard account access to the drives. Be sure to only deny his account. You do not want to deny your's or all accounts.

While your at it, you might also consider using Parental Controls on his account to further restrict his account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Or maybe easier method will be virtualization?
Shadow Defender - the easiest PC/laptop security and privacy protection tool
Returnil - The Real Security for your home or business - Download RVS now to protect your PC.

That way all changes will be reverted back after restart.
And there will be no need to log out and log in to his account when he just comes along when you are working.
You will save your files and just turn on virtualization, and he can even install programms delete your files.
Restart and as if nothing even happened

Hi Jav!
I have one more question to you. In order to install Shadow Defender, am I to disable or uninstall my current antivirus?

You're welcome arc. Thank you.

No, you will not need to uninstall or disable anything else to install Shadow Defender, but it's not a free program.

No you don't need to disable or uninstall aything.
As Shadowdefender is virtualization program not Anti Virus.
But as Brink pointed out ShadowDefender isn't free. But it sells lifetime license.

If you follow second link.
It is Returnil.
It has free version aswell.
to see difference between paind and free returnill:
How to secure your PC? - See Returnil's Products (Returnil Virtual System Home Free, Home Lux, Enterprise Classic and Premier)

It has build in Anti Virus aswell.
But you can disable it's AV if you have your own AV and don't need it.
It also has Anti executable function. (but in your case it's not needed)

Post back if you need anymore questions.
