Remove the 3D Objects folder from "This PC"

Remove the 3D Objects folder from "This PC"

Windows 10 now includes a 3D Objects folder under "This PC", which you'll see when using File Explorer or use file browser windows. The vast majority of people will have no need for this folder as 3D object files are so rarely used - even then it's unlikely it requires such a prominent shortcut.:


Please note that the following steps involve registry changes, which you should only attempt if you are comfortable making advanced modifications:

If you'd like to remove the 3D Objects folder from appearing here, right click the start button and select Windows Powershell (admin). Select yes when prompted if you'd like to allow changes:


Now paste in the following commands (using right click or CTRL+V) - do this one at a time, followed by the enter key to execute them:

REG DELETE "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}" /F

REG DELETE "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}" /F

It should look like this when running them:


The next time you open a file browser window, the 3D Objects entry should be removed.

Thank you to @Regedit32 for these commands, which I found in this post.
