    I used a ton of tweaks in diferent order, but each and every single time I used WinAero to specifically edit Navigation Pane, it would always start producing these odd glitching artifacts and "Reset to Default" does absolutely nothing for this glitching. It goes away at times, especially when I restart Explorer, but always comes back. I've never had a tweak do anything remotely like that. Everything works great with WinAero, but this Navigation Pane glitching is unfixable :confused: and occurs even if I make the slightest changes to it, including renaming "Quick access" to something else (and yes, of course I tried to re-name it back to to default...).

    WinAero didn't mess up the PC, OP messed up the PC playing with tweaks he doesn't have the knowledge to use.

    If you don't know enough about what they do, and you don't have the skill to fix things you're going to break, don't play about with big boys toys

    Don't give me that crap. I know now why it didn't work and I fixed it. I downloaded .reg files that did the same exact thing as Winaero with exactly the same side-effect - glitches and some of those .reg files would not fully merge. I opened the .reg files and found that for those which would not fully merge there were several registry entries they were changing - some required persmissions that Admin would not provide with UAC enabled or disabled. I downloaded another tool RegOwnershipEx, took ownership of those entries which would not merge due to permissions, merged them successfully, restored original permissions, restarted and voila - no more bloated pane and no more glitching :D.

    I don't have any official or formal education on how Windows works - I just make good Acronis True Image backups of clean OS install + updates + all latest drivers + all latest software I need + basic tweak using Windows built-in settings and 2 or 3 GPEDIT.MSC tweaks + making desktop nice and tidy with Stardock Start10 and Stardock Fences 3, but no tools or registry merging or registry cleaning or thorough file cleaning or service disabling or task disabling or driver disabling. Then I spend several days testing my rig in every way I can for absolute stability and functionality, so that at any point I can restore that backup and be absolutely certain that everything works there. THEN I tweak, tinker, test, un-tweak, etc. How else am I supposed to learn this???

    You test it in a VM with snapshots to revert back to... call me crazy but that would seem like a better option than practising on your main machine, then crying here when you break it

    I am not crying about it - I have a near-perfect backup I can always go back to and do everything I need to... I just WANT TO KNOW - I LOVE TO LEARN!

    What's the purpose of a NEAR perfect backup, so what you will put back is also crippled to some extend?
