Windows 7: Zip Folders - Enable or Disable Windows Explorer View

Has this changed for the official release (Win 7 Pro)? I get an error when trying to delete {0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262}. I have double checked the steps but still no go.

Hello BZee, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What error are you getting?

Did you take ownership and give yourself "Full Control" of the registry key before trying to delete it? Are you doing this from within a administrator account?

I just got it.

8. In the left pane of regedit, right click on {0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262} and click on Delete. (See screenshot below step 4A)

What step 8 didn't say was that I needed to take owership and set full control for that key before deleting it.

BZee,

That's great news.

Steps 3B or 4B to step 7 did though.

[Steps 3 A) ... B) ... c) Go to step 5; Step 5 ... Step 6 ... Step 7 ...]:
This sequence sets full control for {E88DCCE0-B7B3-11d1-A9F0-00AA0060FA31} and Step 8 says to delete {0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262} but I was getting "Error Deleting Key".

[4. To Disable CAB Folders -]:
This (with steps 5 thru 7) sets full control for {0CD7A5C0-9F37-11CE-AE65-08002B2E1262}; but since step 4c sent me to step 5 and I wasn't concerned with disabling CAB folders, I never went to step 4 in my first several attempts.

Because Step 3 says "To Disable ZIP Compressed Folders -" while Step 4 says "To Disable CAB Folders -
NOTE: You will also need to step 3 as well to disable CAB folders"
I assumed Zip and CAB folders could be disabled separately and Step 4 was not needed to disable Zip folders.

Brink,

I followed your instructions to the letter (checked twice), including deleting both keys but the zip folders are still there! Tried logging off and back on and even restarting Windows but with no luck. Using Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Any more suggestions?

Hello Vortex,

Just to be sure we are on the same page, the ZIP folders are not what are removed when you use the disable option in the tutorial. It's the ability to view the contents of the ZIP folder in Windows Explorer automatically that is disabled instead. Are you still seeing the contents of the ZIP folder in Windows Explorer after disabling this option without manually opening the ZIP folder?
