OK... I'm as green as they come with this stuff.... so please bear with me. I'm trying this out and i'm not getting any results. When i went into the reg the branch, [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders\Shell and [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags\AllFolders\Shell] Didn't exist. All that was there was [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags] and [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags] So, I created the rest of the branch, created the keys and set the values exactly as above. Reboot. open a few folders.... no change... What am I missing here? Thanks for your time.
