Remove All Folders From This PC In File Explorer

When you navigate to File Explorer and select This PC, not only are you able to view all the devices and drives pertaining to your computer, but you also have the option of using quite a number of default folders- namely Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures and Videos. Whatever the reason may be, If you don't want these folders cluttering your PC, In this tutorial, I will show you how to completely remove the lot.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. I've navigated to File Explorer, clicked on This PC and the aforementioned default folders are readily available as outlined In red below.

Whilst It's pretty simple to hide them from view by clicking on the little arrow toward the top left of the window, I will demonstrate how to remove every folder In It's entirety. Essentially, all you will see Is Devices and drives.

To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will remove every folder In This PC with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further ado, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the file that's suited to your operating system's architecture (32-bit or 64-bit). I'm running 64-bit, thus I've double-clicked the file named Remove Folders x64.reg. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've now clicked on This PC In File Explorer, and as you can see, every folder has been removed. All that's visible Is Devices and drives. It certainly looks a lot neater!

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to restore all folders In This PC, simply double-click the Restore Folders.reg file, and hit Yes. Be sure to select the file that's relative to your OS (32-bit or 64-bit).

Final Thoughts:

The good thing about this tweak, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, thus leaves very little to no room for corruption. Moreover, the changes can be reversed, just as easy as It Is to apply.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
