  1. How do I undo recently added .reg files?


    So for some dumb reason Windows removed the "Auto Arrange" option. So I looked online for solutions and I found one that said download a reg file. With my galaxy brain I thought it would be great idea to install a file type that i didn't even know existed. After merging it it did what it would say it would do show the option to disable Auto Arrange. Now you might say so whats the problem? if it worked perfectly whats wrong, well it didn't work perfectly and since it uses older windows files now my file explorer is a mix of old and new properties so it doesn't work with dark mode (which what I use) and the text is black making blend in with the background. It doesn't do anything else just breaks the file explorer its still perfectly usable just looks weird. So is there any solutions or do I have to do a Factory Reset?

    Recent File List

    to prevent it from autopopulating try making the reg key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List read only

    Recent File List

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file1

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file2
    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file9
    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.

    How do I undo recently added .reg files?

    Recent File List

    only way I know to clear em out is to remove the reg keys

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint\Recent File List.

    you can try setting that container to read only but I'm not sure how that will affect it. or a basic powershell/vbscript in taskscheduler to wipe those keys every so often.
