    How to get horiz scrolling in Navigation Pane in Win 10 Explorer


    Welcome to TenForums @linuxgarou

    One suggestion would be to hover the mouse over the dividing line between the navigation pane and the list of files (it's the right-hand edge of the navigation pane's vertical scroll bar). When the pointer becomes a double-headed arrow you can click-and-drag to make the navigation pane wider.

    I have mine set to about twice the width of the one in your screenshot.

    Edit: and so apparently does Ztrucker in the following post.

    Hide or Show User Profile's Personal Folders in Navigation Pane


    Thank you in advance to everyone for your help and time. Hopefully this write-up is succinct. navigation pane :)
    I believe there has to be additional registry modifications to solve this issue.


    Problem:
    In the Navigation Pane, specifically regarding the Current User folder tree, a Personal Folder (i.e. 3D Objects, Contacts, Desktop, etc... ) continues to show even after making active the Hidden property for that Personal Folder.

    Expected Results:
    Any Personal Folder that is marked "Hidden" in the File/Folder Listings Area should also be hidden in the Navigation Pane specifically within the Current User folder tree.

    Steps to recreate the issue: (the following steps assume that the option is deactivated to see hidden folders.)
    • Open File Explorer
    • Within Navigation Pane, Right-click over any blank area
    • Select menu-option "Show All Folders"
    • Select and Expand the Current User folder tree which is listed as a child object to the "Desktop" folder
    • Within the File/Folder Listings Area, Right-click on a Personal Folder
    • Select menu-option "Properties"
    • Within the new Dialogue window, Select the "General" tab, Select to Activate the Attribute "Hidden", Select the "OK" button
    • Close File Explorer and then Open File Explorer
    • Select the Current User folder in the Navigation Pane
    • Notice the recently-hidden folder is still showing in the Navigation Pane even though it is hidden in the File/Folder Listings Area.

    System Specs:
    • Edition: Windows 10 Home 64bit
    • Version: 1709
    • OS Build: 16299.371
    • Hard Drives: 2 (SSD & Mechanical)
    • C:\ = SSD
    • D:\ = Mechanical

    Current Modifications of System:
    • The %UserProfile% system folder was successfully transferred to D:\ by using Sysprep during Windows Setup. This is the only system folder moved to another drive.

    Current Modifications of File Explorer in Navigation Pane: (using Regedit)
    • Hidden = Quick Access
    • Hidden = Libraries
    • Hidden = OneDrive
    • Hidden = Homegroup
    • Hidden = This PC user personal folders

    Current Modifications of File Explorer in Folder/File Listing Area:
    • Each unwanted Personal Folder was changed to "Hidden" by Right-clicking the folder and Checking the Attribute checkbox marked "Hidden".

    3rd-Party Software Installed:

    • Classic Shell
    • Mozilla Firefox
    • IObit Driver Booster
    • Macrium Reflect

    Hide or Show User Profile's Personal Folders in Navigation Pane


    Hello Brink and thank you. This website is a very helpful resource. navigation pane :)

    Your suggested answer will hide the User Profile folder in the Navigation Pane.

    Instead, this scenario involves not hiding the User Profile folder but hiding specific Personal Folders in the Navigation Pane that are marked "Hidden" in the Files/Folders Listing Area.

    My suspicion is that there are more "PinToNamespace" registry entries for me to toggle the DWORD value.
