    Make Explorer Window Dividers Thicker or Colored

    Thank you for your reply & suggestion. I've looked at themes. The problem is that I've made several customizations to icons, colors, etc. & I finally got everything that I wanted except for the dividers. All the themes that I've seen don't correct that problem. I was hoping to find something...

    Make Explorer Window Dividers Thicker or Colored

    I have 2 computers, WinXP & Win10. In WinXP, when I open an Explorer (or an Explorer folder), the demarcations are distinct (i.e. the ones that divide Name, Size, Date modified, etc.). However, in Windows 10, I can barely see them. I like my overall color scheme...it's just that one thing...

    Add Windows Settings to your Desktop Context Menu

    Thank you so much!! I found that I had to delete the old registry entries first, as running the new script kept the "Mixed reality", added Phone, but not Search. I guess that's because there were two entries with the same numbered placeholder. Works like a charm now. Again, I wish you good...

    Add Windows Settings to your Desktop Context Menu

    Thank you for your reply. No, I was seeking to add Settings > Search, which is new to version 1903.

    Add Windows Settings to your Desktop Context Menu

    Hi Regedit32. I've been using this for some time & love it. The new Windows 10 version 1903, adds a Search & Phone & doesn't include mixed reality. I tried to add these myself & delete the Mixed Reality, but couldn't do it. Could you post how to add the above new ones & delete the one that...

    System Restore Points: limited to 1 automatic?

    I can create a shortcut that opens the dialog box, but then I thought that I had to manually select the correct drive (as it also shows an external drive, even though protection is off for that drive). Also, how do you get it to create a restore point at a set interval automatically?

    System Restore Points: limited to 1 automatic?

    I delayed the upgrade for 30 days. Nevertheless, my System Restore dialog box now has the checkbox. It happened right after the following update: Now all I have to do is modify the registry so that it creates a new restore point every day. Have to look that one up. Thank you for all your...

    System Restore Points: limited to 1 automatic?

    I have Windows 10 Pro, 64bit. The size is set to 409GB. When I go to System Information, it says version 10.16299, Build 16299. Strange because I keep a log & it shows I updated to version 1709 on 12/9/17. I did a restore recently, but it was from April. I just realized that the above is...

    System Restore Points: limited to 1 automatic?

    Wow. That box doesn't exist on my system restore. I'm not sure how I can update my system restore dialog box???

    System Restore Points: limited to 1 automatic?

    For some reason, whenever I go to system restore to see the dates of the restore points, there's only 1 there. I can create a manual restore point, but if I check back after an update or some event that creates an automatic system restore point, that's the only one that's available. And I even...

    SOLVED How change attributes or delete a read-only folder & subfolders

    Hi Wolfie: I don't want to mislead anyone. It's no longer a problem because I didn't end up having to change permissions or delete any folders. I found a non corrupt backup from about a month ago & restored my entire computer from that. I'm still not sure what group I would use to change...

    SOLVED How change attributes or delete a read-only folder & subfolders

    Thank you for your reply. Sorry I took so long to respond. I thought I would get email notification of a response, but I didn't. Also, I had a corrupt backup that I had restored from & had dozens of problems. Fortunately, this problem went away as I found an earlier backup that wasn't...

    SOLVED How change attributes or delete a read-only folder & subfolders

    Thank you for your response. I did try that, but have difficulty finding what "group" to give permission to. I just tried it again, both directly & with Powershell. I'm still unable to change the attribute or delete the folder & subfolders. I've attached the pictures of what I get when I try...

    SOLVED How change attributes or delete a read-only folder & subfolders

    I have Windows 10 Pro. I've been trying to delete a folder & it's subfolders without success. I thought I took ownership, but I'm not sure. I've run Powershell as administrator & tried the following commands: attrib -r -s C:\FolderName However, this doesn't do anything. I tried: Del /? to...
