Druid628 :: Tech Tips :: Inbox Removal

[Print-friendly]


Have you ever been bothered by that nasty little inbox icon on your desktop? Especially after you first load a machine it is always there and you can not really seem to be rid of it.  Now you can find out how :-)
Open your registry editor and locate the following string and remove it.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ explorer\
Desktop\ NameSpace\00020D75-0000-0000-C000-000000000046
If you need to do this for a mass number of PC's and want to create a reg file to use it should look something like this (but all as one line):
REGEDIT4

-[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\
Desktop\NameSpace\{00020D75-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]

Then go back to your desktop and refresh that bad boy (by pressing F5 or right clicking and selecting refresh incase you didn't already know) and watch that inbox go bye-bye
