dumb mistake

big problem!-was trying to add 'delete' button to folder's command bar using method from the beginning of this thread, but instead of using option 1, I used option 2 and REMOVED 'DELETE' OPTION FROM tHE ORGANIZE CONTEXT MENU!!!. Now I cannot delete anything from any folder. I tried using option 1 afterwards but it did not work. Shawn or anybody there with some idea, please help, I really don't want to resort to use of system restore.
Thanks in advance

Hello Darwin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No worries. Option Two only removes what was done in Option One.

Double check to make sure that you did all of the steps in Option One. Especially step 4.

It works!

Thanks for the info. I always thought Windows 7 was a pain not to have the delete button. This method really works for me, and it's easy to do too even though it looks a little complicated at first. Very clear instructions, nice! Appreciate it!

Unblock the downloaded .reg file

In order for your .reg file to be imported properly you must first unblock it or you will experience the same error as not following the steps above.

To do this you must right click the .reg file and click properties, then at the bottom near where it says "Security:" click the button that says "Unblock".

Provided you have followed the steps above everything should work fine

Hello Chillax,

There's no need to unblock the .reg file unless you just wanted to.

When you merge the downloaded .reg file, clicking on Run when prompted would be to allow the blocked .reg file to merge.

Unblocking the .reg file would only stop you from being prompted to click on Run whenever merging it.
