Windows 7: Control Panel - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

I'm having issues with this.

At first I thought that the tweak only applies when "show all folders" is unchecked...

Then I read

To Remove Control Panel from the Navigation Pane
A) In the right pane of regedit, right click on Attributes, click on Modify, type in a0900004 and click on OK. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: This is to not have the Control Panel display under Desktop when you have Show all folders checked.


Mine is still showing (unless 'show all' is unchecked).

Got (shellfolder) permission, first tried with nav pane changer.exe (which provides permission by adding full user control directly).

show all shows


Can I remove control panel and trash (and maybe have libraries only in 'show all')?!

Thanks

Hello Jonny,

Double check through all of the steps to see if you may have made a mistake or missed something anywhere.

Since you have 64-bit Windows, did you also do step 9?

Did you restart the computer afterwards to fully apply?

The tutorial below can help show you how to remove the Recycle Bin from the navigation pane.

Hope this helps for now,

I'll tell you what's weird. Tried on my bro's Asus (also win7x64Ult), pow! one reg key change (attributes) successfully hides unwanted entries (control panel, etc), whilst "show all" on mine (win 7 test.vhd) was not hiding items.

I checked, and discovered that the registry change was being undone.

I loaded my "clean" VHD (drivers only, no apps), made the change, no problems...

I tried on another build, and had the problem... until I used Advanced Uninstaller Pro's (built-in) Services {Profile} editor to restore [to default] the system services, and their startup states.

This worked.

Trying again now. Will try and document...

I ran regown to get ownership, it wouldn't let me (I, the user 'Jonny', was the owner).

Retried, everything's fixed.

One thing I wanted to check: are you supposed to be able to have no recycle bin, even when 'show all' is checked?

Great news.

Yep, you should be able to not have the Recycle Bin show even with "show all" checked.

To Remove the Recycle Bin from the Navigation Pane
A) In the right pane of ShellFolder, right click on PinToNameSpaceTree (if there), and click on Delete. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: This is to not have the Recycle Bin display separately in the navigation pane when you do not have Show all folders checked
It doesn't say on here how to not display When 'show all' is checked. The attributes format is different (binary not hex!)

Oops. Sorry about that. I misread it myself. It looks like the Recycle Bin will show if you have "Show all" checked.

Hello Humberto. and welcome to Seven Forums.

The Control Panel will open the same way as it was last closed, so this will open the same way.
