[Windows 10 Tip] Remove Icons from Navigation Pane of This PC

If you are using Windows 10 OS in your computer, you might have noticed 2 new icons in Windows Explorer (also known as "This PC" or My Computer) Navigation Pane:

  • OneDrive
  • Quick Access

Apart from these 2 new icons, some older icons such as Homegroup and Network are still present in Navigation Pane of This PC.

Also when you attach a removable device such as USB Flash drive, external hard disk, etc, a separate icon of the removable drive is shown in navigation pane along with the same icon present under This PC section. So the removable drive icon is shown twice in navigation pane as shown in following screenshot:

PART 1: Remove OneDrive Icon from Navigation Pane of This PC

Removing OneDrive icon is the most easiest task. You'll not need to take ownership of any Registry key and you'll not need to restart or log off. The changes will be instant.

1. Press WIN+R keys together to open RUN dialog box. You can also open it from WIN+X menu. Now type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.

2. Now go to following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}

3. In right-side pane, change value of System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree DWORD to 0

Remove_OneDrive_Icon_Windows_10_This_PC_Navigation_Pane.png

That's it. It'll immediately remove OneDrive icon from This PC Navigation Pane.

If you want to restore OneDrive icon, change the value of System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree DWORD to 1 again.

NOTE: If you are using 64-bit edition of Windows 10, you may notice that OneDrive icon is still present in "Browse" dialog box such as Save, Save as or Open in some 3rd party 32-bit programs. To remove OneDrive icon from there, you'll need to perform the same steps in following key as well:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}

Just go to above mentioned key and in right-side pane, change value of System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree DWORD to 0 to remove OneDrive icon.

NOTE: If you want to completely disable OneDrive functionality in Windows 10, check out following tutorial:

PART 2: Remove Quick Access Icon from Navigation Pane of This PC

Removing Quick Access icon is a little bit hard compared to removing OneDrive icon. Due to some unknown reasons, changing "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" DWORD value to 0 doesn't remove Quick Access icon from Navigation Pane even after restarting the computer.

So we'll need to change its attributes to remove its icon from Navigation Pane:

NOTE: Some readers have reported issues related to Explorer (such as broken drag-n-drop functionality) after applying this Registry tweak to remove "Quick Access" icon from This PC Navigation Pane.

1. Open Registry Editor and go to following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder

2. Now take ownership of ShellFolder key with the help of this guide.

3. In right-side pane, change value of Attributes DWORD to a0600000

Remove_Quick_Access_Icon_Windows_10_This_PC_Navigation_Pane.png

4. Restart, log off or restart Explorer as given here to take effect and it'll remove Quick Access icon from This PC Navigation Pane.

If you want to restore Quick Access icon, change the value of Attributes DWORD to a0100000 again.

NOTE: If you are using 64-bit edition of Windows 10, you may notice that Quick Access icon is still present in "Browse" dialog box such as Save, Save as or Open in some 3rd party 32-bit programs. To remove Quick Access icon from there, you'll need to perform the same steps in following key as well:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder

Just go to above mentioned key, take ownership of the key and in right-side pane, change value of Attributes DWORD to a0600000 to remove Quick Access icon.

PART 3: Remove Homegroup Icon from Navigation Pane of This PC

Homegroup icon can be removed using any of following 3 methods:

  • By using "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" DWORD method

2. Now take ownership of {B4FB3F98-C1EA-428d-A78A-D1F5659CBA93} key with the help of this guide.

3. In right-side pane, create a new DWORD System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree and leave its value to 0

PART 5: Remove Removable Drive Icon from Navigation Pane of This PC

Removing removable drive icon is also very easy task. Similar to OneDrive icon method, you'll not need to take ownership of any Registry key and you'll not need to restart or log off. The changes will be instant.

1. Open Registry Editor and go to following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders

2. Under "DelegateFolders" key, you'll find {F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83} key.

3. Now delete the {F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83} key and it'll immediately remove the double removable drive icon from This PC Navigation Pane.

If you want to restore removable drive icon, create a new key under DelegateFolders key and set its name to {F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83} again.

NOTE: If you are using 64-bit edition of Windows 10, you may notice that the drive icon is still present in "Browse" dialog box such as Save, Save as or Open in some 3rd party 32-bit programs. To remove the duplicate drive icon from there, you'll need to perform the same steps in following key as well:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFolders

Under "DelegateFolders" key, delete {F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83} key.

NOTE: If you don't want to modify Registry yourself, you can download following ready-made Registry script to do the task automatically:

Download Registry Script to Remove Icons from Navigation Pane of This PC

After downloading the ZIP file, extract it and run the desired .REG file to remove the icon. But you'll still need to manually take ownership of the Registry key first as mentioned in above tutorial. The Registry script can only change values in Registry Editor. It can't take ownership of keys.

Extra Registry scripts to restore icons in Navigation Pane are also present in ZIP file.

PS: If you want to remove Libraries icon from Navigation Pane, no Registry editing is required as Windows 10 already allows you to show or hide Libraries item in Navigation Pane using context menu as shown in following tutorial:

  • I had Dropbox installed when I upgraded. A Dropbox folder was added to the navigation pane similar to OneDrive. Should I follow these steps to remove that too?

  • Hello VG, I want to know something about the new context menu of windows 10. Basically there are two different types of context menus in windows 10, first one is appearing in most places (which is simple & black and white and ugly of course) and the second one is appearing when right clicking titlebar or clicking menubar buttons which is almost same as previous windows versions. (I am not sure but may be I saw another kind of context menu which was a combination of the two kind stated above ie colorful & simple and currently it is replaced by the second one).

    Now, I want to know if there exist any way to get rid of the simple context menu and restore the second context menu (mentioned above) in all places.

  • Update: The Aero Lite theme was the reason behind second type of context menu mentioned in my above question, the default theme have a colorful & simple context menu in titlebar or menubar.

  • hey I have dual core pc with 1gb ram. I'm using win 7 currently. should I upgrade to win10? I mostly use Firefox for browsing and watch 1080p movies. I would appreciate any help.

  • VG

    ^^ Windows 10 is a new OS so it supports many new technologies and hardware type and you should upgrade to it. But its user interface and functionality is very different than Windows 7 so it may take some time in getting used to it.

  • Great guide!! I was able to get those annoying folders out of the way so I can quickly access network drives.

    One question that I had is that when I go to save PDFs or something else, in the "Save As" window, those annoying folders still pop up! But ONLY in that instance. Is there any way to remove them from the Save As window?

  • VG

    ^^ Have you checked the NOTE given in each method?

  • Great tips!! Mr. VG . I was wondering is there any way to restore favourites link in windows 10 navigation pane like windows 7/8. And I'm not talking abt the quick access .
    thank you.

  • Mostly good tips but the one to not show the libraries does not work in windows 10. The box in View/Options to show the libraries is not ticked but they are still there on the screen. Also, the one to remove the 6 folders from the right-hand side of the screen removes them from "This PC" on the left-hand side as well which was not what I wanted. I guess that you have two choices: remove them from both sides or not at all. I also noticed that the screen shots showed "This PC" as the highest level folder on the left-hand side of the screen. On both my Acer Aspire, upgraded from windows 8.1 64-bit and my Samsung laptop, upgraded from windows 7 32-bit, "This PC" and other folders are all inside "Desktop" at the highest level which I find strange because the first folder inside "This PC" is also "Desktop" and the contents are not identical. Can you shed any light on this ?

  • VG

    ^^ Right-click in navigation pane and uncheck "Show all folders" option.

    @Sunil
    No. But you can try the step to restore favorites icon given in following tutorial:

    http://www.askvg.com/how-to-remove-favorites-from-windows-7-explorers-navigation-pane/

  • hello VG, thanks for this very great guide.

    PART1 & PART 2 working well for me, but:
    [Section: PART 3: Remove Homegroup Icon from Navigation Pane of This PC]
    I am using W10 french, and (Groupe Résidentiel) in Navigation Pane is stil here !

    Is there solution, ?
    Thank you very much.

  • VG

    ^^ Did you try method B and C in Homegroup?

  • VG thank you very much , I forgot the two methods (B and C).
    using the method (B) , everything worked , and the group is no longer displayed !
    Have a good day :)

  • Hi, I like the Remove Quick Access from File Explorer but I am seeing the same problem on two different Win 10 computers with this feature. After the Registry "Attributes"=dword:a0600000 change is made, I can no longer drag and drop folders and files!!! Using the right click "copy" of the source and Right click "paste" to the destination works, however... Thought I would mention this to you and perhaps you could verify this is the case for you also.

    Thanks,

    Jack

  • VG

    ^^ No. That can't happen. Working fine here. The registry tweak only hides the icon from Navigation pane, nothing else.

  • Hi. The same thing happened to me on W10 Pro. I removed Quick Access using the above registry tweaks and drag and drop stopped working. I change the 6 back to 1 and it worked again. Strange.

  • Changing the values in the registry for QuickAccess breaks file explorer in Windows 10. I spent several hours trying to figure out how I lost file explorer and after reverting back to 7 and upgrading again, I tested file explorer after each step. I finally found that the hack to hide QuickAccess was the culprit. I put the values back to [a0100000] and file explorer works again.

  • Just like @Michael said. I think this happen after build 10586 update, because before update this tweaks work flawlessly.

  • VG

    ^^ I'm using all the above mentioned tweaks to remove the icons from Navigation pane in the latest build 10586 without any problem.

  • There is a cons about removing users folder in This PC.... If you already enabled User folder(Documents, Downloads, etc) on start menu, it will not work anymore. After you clicked on one of user folders, it will ask you where to locate the folder (the same thing happen when you open a missing shortcut)... Even though you locate the user folders, the shortcut will be reset again.

  • In the Windows 10 Navigation Pane, how do I get rid of all the little line-by-line icons? You helped me reclaim vertical real estate, now I want to reclaim the horizontal real estate too.

    These silly icons don't seem to add a single bit of information, relative to what I get from the name standing alone; they seem to be pure noise and waste of screen. In a particularly constrained pane of the screen.

  • VG

    ^^ Please provide a screenshot to better understand your issue.

  • I have been making use of these removals for some time. Today (December 8, 2015) I opened windows explorer to find the quick access tab back in the navigation pane. Went back to the registry and the key was back to the original value. I updated it again to remove the quick access tab, and now there is an entry in the navigation pane that is the quick access icon (slanted blue star) without any words next to it. It highlights when moused over, but has no functionality.

    What gives? Why did quick access come back on its own? Why does the removal no longer function properly? Am i experiencing an isolated issue or has this happened to everyone?

  • VG

    ^^ Many times new Windows updates restores registry keys, thats why we have to apply the tweak again.

  • This is great and very helpful, but I have the opposite problem. After having modified the default location of the Box Sync folder, the shortcut link disappeared from the Navigation Pane. Is there a way to restore that link or add a link to the new location without resorting to using a Quick Access shortcut?

  • Thank you!
    Step 5 was right what I needed.

  • I used step 5 (PART 5: Remove Removable Drive Icon from Navigation Pane of This PC) some time ago and then Microsoft decided to change it back. I went to apply it again and things in the registry have changed. Key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83}" is no longer where the article shows it and there seems to be more entries under it. It looks like we can change a value rather than remove it. However I'm not that good with the registry to know. What do you think?

  • To remove OneDrive for Business from the Navigation Pane:
    Navigate to --> HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{3BA2E6B1-A6A1-CCF6-942C-D370B14D842B}
    Change System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree from 1 to 0
    Restart Windows Explorer or reboot computer.

  • When I click on This PC, I have two local drives/devices under the column and on the right side of the navigation pane. One drive (L:) has been removed and disconnected. The other (M:) was given a new volume and renamed W: How do I get rid of them if they are not there? If I left click the icon, I get an Error msg L: is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect.

  • VG

    ^^ Open Disk Manager using diskmgmt.msc command and there you can remove drive letters.

  • Thank you so much for this great information! Works fine and I learned a lot about taking ownership.
    However, removing the "Quick Access" lead to disabled "Drag & Drop" functionality on the "tree side" (left pane) of Windows Explorer. Any idea how to remove "Quick Access" without loss of "Drag & Drop" functionality?

  • Ahh, sorry, just read about this known issue. So it's not an isolated issue for me :-)

  • This is working with win10 1511??

  • VG

    ^^ Yes. It works in all builds.

  • Thx!

  • After removing quick access icon drag and drop stopped working. I "put it back" and it's all working again!

  • Thank you so much for this fix, I just wanted to remove the extra drives from the navigation panel, and your fix did the trick.

    Thank You!

  • VG - these are priceless!
    I have the Adobe CC and I rarely - if never - use the Creative Cloud option. HOWEVER, the Creative Cloud Files icon is in my navigation pane and I need to get it off there.
    Can you tell me how?

    Thanks

  • VG

    ^^ You'll need to search in Registry yourself and find the key related to Adobe CC as I dont have this product installed in my computers.

  • You are the true genius man.
    thank you very much ;) (y)

  • kaybierocket

    Try [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{0E270DAA-1BE6-48F2-AC49-BAEA3A58696D}] to remove Creative Cloud Icon from Navigation pane.

  • Goh, het is mogelijk al die rommel te verwijderen. Fan-tas-tisch.

  • Hello. I utilized your reg file for the removable device duplicates and it worked perfectly, thank you. However, when i try to run the removal of homegroup i get

    imgur.com/m5T19Zm

    i have tried disabling both homegroup services as well and got the same result. it cant be a rights issue so i am at a loss on what process could be keeping it form being removed from the nav panel.

  • never mind. i went to the location in regedit, deleted the entry created by your script and created a 32 bit dword. i am running 64bit (and assuming your script put it in as 64 dword) but 32 was the only way i got it to disappear.

  • Hi VG. Just upgraded to the anniversary issue of Win 10. The install has reset all these tweats to remove icons from navigation pane back to default. Microsoft must have changed some registry settings because when I try these out again to remove the unwanted icons it won't allow some of it even after getting permissions. Also the downloadable scripts to do it automatically no longer work properly. Can't remove or change the attributes for the save as dialog, etc. Any suggestions or updates to this would be great. Thanks

  • VG

    ^^ I have applied all registry tweaks successfully in all my Windows 10 machines upgraded to Anniversary Update. All are working fine. Dont forget to take ownership of Registry keys first.

  • Thanks for your reply. Done that first obviously. Strange, no matter how many times I keep trying it will only allow part of those tweaks to work. Cannot remove the Network Icon at all, also all the icons are present when you do "save", save as, browse, etc.

    When I try your ready made scripts I get error message "not all data was successfully written to the registry" for all remove and restore scripts.

    When I try method A to remove network icon I get error message "cannot create value. Error writing to the registry. When I try method B I get error message "cannot edit attributes. Error writing the value's new contents." Same error messages when I try to do the "save as" dialog changes.

    Should I roll back and re update?

  • VG

    ^^ These error occur when you have not taken ownership of the Registry key. First take ownership and then run Registry script.

  • I know how to take ownership and of course I did it first. I did it successfully before the update and doing it exactly the same after the update proves not possible.

    If what you think is true then why will none of your ready-made scripts work successfully since the update? Or do you have to take ownership first before they will work now?

  • VG

    ^^ Yes. The update might have reset the permission and you'll need to take the ownership again.

  • Hi, is it possible to add dekstop folder to nav panel? abload.de/img/explorer_2016-08-12_1qbk2x.png

  • VG

    ^^ Right-click in navigation pane and select show all folders option.

  • Thanks for the answer, but I want the desktop folder icon in "normal view"., because i don't want other icons like Contacts, Documents, Search etc

  • Thanks VG!
    I have been reading your stuff for many years.

    I have a question.
    Is there any way to re-order the icons under 'This PC' in the navigation pane on the left side? I want all my network locations to be BELOW the drives. By default they are above 'Local Disk C'. This would put them above the network icon which seems like where they should be. (I leave the network icon because I use it) Network locations are just shortcuts to network shares, not mapped drives. They should be below the drives.

    Thanks for all you do,

    Chris

  • Why can't you just post the registry file downloads down there so we can do it fast?

  • Hello, thanks for all the steps, they worked wonderfully.

    I am wondering if there is any way to remove the "Help" icon from the top right of explorer windows? (The icon with a question mark and blue background)

  • Under "This PC", I also have Desktop, Downloads, Music, Picture, Videos shortcut. do you know how to remove them?

  • VG

    ^^ Did you try following?

    http://www.askvg.com/tip-remove-6-extra-folders-from-windows-10-explorer-this-pc/

  • Many thanks VG, for regedit removal of W10 nav pane duplicate ext drive entries. By the way, just for the uninitiated, do you lose both if you delete one directly from the nav pane?? !!

  • WOW!!!!! Big hug and Big Thanks. So cool!

  • > NOTE: Some readers have reported issues related to Explorer (such as broken drag-n-drop
    > functionality) after applying this Registry tweak to remove "Quick Access" icon from This PC
    - Yes! This happened to me too.
    I am using 64-bit Windows 10 Professional on an ASUS-E502S laptop.
    Losing the drag-and-drop functionality is (for me at least) a LOT more painful than having the (slightly) annoying Quick Access icon in the navigation pane. Searching the internet, I could not find any solution ridding the Quick Access icon that did not also cause the loss in drag-and-drop functionality.
