Re: Windows x64 Xp No Hide Desktop Icons

Hello , I also have the similar Problem. that I cannot hide my desktop icons anymore i know there is way to set permissions that will disable the desktop, but that also disables right clicking as well. How did you hide your desktop icons without disabling right click? Thanks in Advance for your replies

Hello , Check This Out it May Solve Your Problem ,

Quote:
Click Start>Run, type regedit, click Ok, drill down in the registry to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\
Explorer]

On the right side you have a list with 4 items, I added the last myself since I do not use Recent Documents...
ForceActiveDesktopOn
NoActiveDesktop
NoActiveDesktopChanges
NoDriveTypeAutoRun
NoRecentDocsHistory

Double-Click each of the above listed and edit the Value data field, set it to 0 to disable the effect and set the number to 1 to enable a setting.

Mine are setup like this:
ForceActiveDesktopOn 0x00000000 (0)
NoActiveDesktop 0x00000000 (0)
NoActiveDesktopChanges 0x00000000 (0)
NoDriveTypeAutoRun 95 00 00 00
NoRecentDocsHistory 0x00000001 (1)

When done reboot and the right-click option is back again.

Also double-check here if the above does not work although it should.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
