    Can not make registry changes.


    I've concluded that anyone who's search ends up here:
    Add or Remove Duplicate Drives in Navigation Pane in Windows 10 General Tips Tutorials
    has probably ended up in a number of other places which make the same conclusions.
    I have no reason to doubt that my Nav pane duplicates should be easily deleted with these registry changes:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFold ers\{F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83}]andHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpa ce\DelegateFolders\{F5FB2C77-0E2F-4A16-A381-3E560C68BC83}]

    My problem is that I can not edit my registry to make these key changes. I can not make a permissions change that sticks and even if all reports indicate I have, I can not merge/import the .reg keys.

    Interestingly, I CAN
    merge the keys into DelegateFolders that allow me to ADD folders...but not remove.

    The (T:\) drive in the accompanying screen shot is the only external USB currently turned on.

    IDEAS?

  2. Can not make any changes.

    After downloading windows 10 I some how lost my administrative rights and now can not make any changes to my PC. When I follow instructions on how to change my account setting back it asks if I want to make changes and have to type in an administrative
    password word but does not give me a box to type. Please Help...!!!!

  3. Can not make any changes.

    Yes have a MS account. Trying to make it so I don't have to have a password starting up computer or waking it up. And any other settings I try to change, brings me to a window asking me enter admin. password but nowhere to type password.

    Can not make registry changes.

    - are you sure you actually have duplicates? Which do you think are?

    Quick access items are shortcuts. You don't have to display Quick Access expanded like that in the Navigation Pane.

    Quick Access is closed. Compare the two screenshots. The dupes are showing under "This PC".

  8. Can not make registry changes.

    Okay, I see that now. Yes the fix is usually to delete the registry entries you mentioned. Are you not able to edit anything in the registry or only those entries?

  9. Right tick on one of them and select properties.
    See if their is anything in them. It might give you a clue what they are.

    I KNOW what they are. Duplicates of the T-Drive.

    Can not make registry changes.

    Hey kkorotev,
    I don't know why you can't edit the registry, but as a work around you could try PowerRun. You would just need to add regedit.exe to it's list and run regedit from it.

    PowerRun - PowerRun v1.1 (Run with highest privileges)

    Thanks Eagle 51, but it has no effect. No indication that it's even doing anything. .reg files can not be added.

    Sorry, I meant run regedit.exe from PowerRun, to see if you can manually edit those registry settings.
