You have to delete the whole key for that you have to first of have to press on start. After that In the Search programs and files box, you have to type regedit. Then In the Programs list, you have to press regedit.exe. If you are encouraged for an administrator password or verification, then you have to provide the password or press Continue. Then you have to browse to as well as press to choose the following registry subkey:
Quote:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{ef87b4cb-f2ce-4785-8658-4ca6c63e38c6}
After that in the left side of the window you have to right-press GroupBy as well as after that press Modify. Then you have to alter the value to System.StartMenu.Group as well as press OK, after that close the registry editor.

And then In the Programs list, you have to press regedit.exe. Then Browse to as well as press following registry subkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{ef87b4cb-f2ce-4785-8658-4ca6c63e38c6}\TopViews\{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}
After that in the left side of the window you have to right-press GroupBy as well as after that press Modify. Then you have to alter the value to System.StartMenu.Group as well as press OK, after that close the registry editor. You will require rebooting your PC for this alters to take consequence.
