Hey Brink, thanks for the tutorial. I applied this tweak and it worked, however in dialogue boxes; Favourites are still shown in dialogue boxes.

Any registry key that controls this that may be modified?

Hello Infiinite,

Double check step 9 to make sure it was set properly.

If it was, then use the Find and Find Next feature in Registry Editor to search for the key below. If any are found, check to make sure that in it's ShellFolder subkey to repeat steps 4 to 7/8 in the tutorial to make sure that Attributes is set to a9400100 as well.

Hope this helps.

Ah, I must have got to Step 8 and thought everything was complete and read past it. Thanks

Hello fnukyguy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you remember what you used to remove Favorites from the navigation pane? It may have used a different method than what's in this tutorial.

thank you!

Im pretty sure I used the method described in this guide..
is it possible that the windows update patches released this tuesday may have something to do with this?

I was just able to get the "favorite" back on another computer I have, and that computer has not installed any of the updates released this tuesday

No, the updates shouldn't have affected this.

Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing what you have in the registry for the same as you see below step 6 to see if it may help.

In addition, use the Find and Find Next feature in regedit to search for all instances of the {323CA680-C24D-4099-B94D-446DD2D7249E} key. For each one found, check it's ShellFolder subkey to make sure it's Attributes DWORD is also set as a0900100. When there's no more found, restart the PC to apply to see if Favorites is back now.
