HOWTO: Remove Favorites from Explorer Folder View

Add a comment October 14th, 2010

This is how you remove the Favorites Link in the explorer folder view:

  1. Open regedit and go to [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{323CA680-C24D-4099-B94D-446DD2D7249E}\ShellFolder]
  2. Open regedit and go to [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{323CA680-C24D-4099-B94D-446DD2D7249E}\ShellFolder]
  3. In “ShellFolder” go to ‘Attributes’ and change the value from 0xa0900100 to 0xa400100. (Or to 0xa9400100)
  4. Reboot your machine. If everything is done correctly “Favorites” should now be disabled completely when your system is rebooted.
