    Is there someone who knows how I can get rid of this unsightly part of "This PC" (hah!) in 8.1?

    And I mean REMOVE completely, not just collapse.

    Thanks in advance.

    Damn... I know Mr Jinje posted registry keys to remove those, but I don't know how to search to find what he posted.
    I guess if you went through his activity or asked him, you could probably find them.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
