Remove Folders from This PC

In Windows 10 registry is maintaining a string ThisPCPolicy with a value of Show or Hide based on which folder is shown or hidden in This PC. If you set the ThisPCPolicy value to Show, then that particular folder is shown in This PC, and if you set that value to Hide, then that folder is hidden from “This PC” in Windows 10. To edit the registry just copy the following code to NotePad and save with a .reg extension then double click to run it.
