    MonarchX messed up his-This PC himself. :) Probably with some garage-made Windows-look customization. :)

    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

    No other way. You're right. This is called experimenting and it's ok.

    The point here MonarchX is that you should stop opening thread after thread at your pleasure, your pleasure is not our pleasure. You can cry but cry for yourself alone in your home. M$ don't want you or anyone to tweak their OSes in such ways.

    Or just open one thread just for your rants and questions. Be considerate with other members. If I was moderator I would have suggested this since ages.

    Edit:
    See what I'm talking about?

    It seems you are doing this on purpose... :mad:

    Worst of all, many people seem to be hypnotized by you and reply in your endless threads. They contribute to your "king" parade over MDL.

    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?

    Yeah, it is an excellent thread with a very specific quesiton that is not answered anywhere else on MDL. Is there a sticky on how to bypass minimum space requirement during Windows install? I am about to make another thread with a very specific question and a good one (IMO) with a question that has not been answered because nobody asked it! In that thread I would ask where does Windows 10 Creator's Update keep a list of games for which it applies Game Mode. I can press WIN+G in most games and enable Game Mode for those games, but a few of them just won't bring up the Game Bar. There has to be some place that record which games or .exe files have been added to the Game Mode and I would like to know where that list is or how to manually add games or .exe files to that list. Why the hell should I NOW make sucha thread with such a wonderful question??? If I am curious about it - I am sure others are!
