Hello Shawn, I know how busy you are but have you had a go at the Permissions for this in Windows 8 yet, I was fooling around with it the other day but didn't get very far and gave up.

Hello Ted,

No problem. I have it on the list of "to further pursue" in the W8 RTM, but I'll do some more digging tonight with it. I didn't have much luck in the RP & earlier either.

Ted,

Great news. I just tested this in Windows 8 Pro RTM, and it works perfectly now.

I'll write up separate tutorials on it and the others tonight over at Eight Forums.

Thanks ... ... and ... ... I wonder, is there a way ...

Hi Brink

Thank you for a brilliant set of guides on removing unwanted functions from the Explorer Pane.

Your instructions are very easy to follow, the only thing I might add would be "how to backup the registry to the desktop". I do this as a matter of routine, and delete the backup after a few days when I am happy my system is OK.

Also, I wonder, is there a way to remove the option "Include in Library" from the Explorer tool bar ? If so, it would be a useful addition to your guide on "how to remove libraries from Explorer".

Thanks again for your really helpful guides

Hello handygrandad,

Sorry for the late reply. You should be able to use one of the options in the tutorial below to remove the Include in Library button from the command bar (toolbar) in Windows Explorer.

Windows Explorer Toolbar Buttons - Customize

The tutorial below will remove it from the context menu.

Include in library - Add or Remove from Context Menu

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Shawn, thank you once again. These tutorials are helpful every time I reinstall Windows. What would we do without this information?

It is really stupid of Microsoft not allowing the user to customise these things. The navigation pane is something users look at and use all day long, it's the central hub of the computer interface, and yet it never occurred to Microsoft that users might want to customise it so that it only contains things we want, and no way to make sub-folders? Crazy.
