Hi there,

I will appreciate if you can help me find correct registry entries that would help (i) to tweak "Folder Options" and (ii) apply tweaks to all folders ("Apply to Folders") and users on computer.

I've tried googling and found some tweaks (see: excerpt below) which allegedly would serve for the purpose but none of them work.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder]
"Type"="group"
"Text"="@shell32.dll,-30498"
"Bitmap"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,\

  68,00,65,00,6c,00,6c,00,33,00,32,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,2c,00,34,00,00,\

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\AlwaysShowMenus]
"Type"="checkbox"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\AlwaysShowMenus\Policy]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\AlwaysShowMenus\Policy\AlwaysShowClassicMenu]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\AutoCheckSelect]

"Type"="checkbox"
"Text"="@shell32.dll,-30507"
"HKeyRoot"=dword:80000001
"RegPath"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\Advanced"
"ValueName"="SeparateProcess"
"CheckedValue"=dword:00000001
"UncheckedValue"=dword:00000000
"DefaultValue"=dword:00000000
"HelpID"="shell.hlp#51079"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\DesktopProcess\Policy]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\DesktopProcess\Policy\SeparateProcess]

They don't work because there is no difference between default Win7 install (on Virtual PC) and the one that I use on my rig - values, keys are the same... So no effect at all!!!

Thank you very much in advance!!!

Drop these into an INF. These are the ones I use; they may include some settings you don't want so be selective.
