Hello Tuck,

This tutorial does not include these buttons unfortunately.

The tutorial below will show you how to remove Map network drive though. I do not know about the others yet.

And there isn't any way to remove these buttons from registry to?

I have not been able to get rid of "Play all" (Windows.playmusic) with either method, general and specific, in this tutorial. Right now Windows.playmusic is gone from commandstore but Play all still appears - where's it coming from? No biggie, but I just don't need it. Otherwise, I like the folderband and have it pretty much how I want it.

Hello debugged,

What window is this for? I'll do some testing to see what I may be able to come up with.

Music folders and Video folders - not the Library folders, but my own set up as per music and video templates, where there's nothing but music or video files inside. Thanks for looking - I'll try some more stuff as well, but I'm bemused by getting Play all when Windows.playmusic is gone.

Well, after a "duh..." moment, I got a quick workaround - just reset all the music and video folders to General Items template where the "Play all" command doesn't appear. I've been holding off resetting all folders to one template, but good grief! ...but still wondering where that command comes from.

debugged,

I couldn't get rid of Play all either without changing the folder template as well. I'm guessing that it may be locked in by Windows Media Player, but I have not found any other location in the registry that this may be at yet.

I have added a note about this workaround in Option One to help everyone with for now.

I was thinking what you said - "it may be locked in by Windows Media Player", and considered removing it to check it out. Then decided not to bother for now as I'm ok with the workaround - all the media file associations are fine, so I'm good to go. Thanks for looking into it.
