11. Open the Start Menu, then type in the Shell command (see table below) in the search box for the Public folder that you want to restore and press Enter. NOTE:This is to see if it will open the public folder, and is restored to the C:\Users\Public location. If so, then you can skip step 11 and go to step 12.
12. You may need to log off and log on, or restart the computer, to finish restoring the default public folder location. NOTE:Sometimes you may need to restart more than once for the changes to be applied.
13. When done, you can delete the downloaded .reg file(s) on the desktop if you like.
