Remove Shared Documents Icon from My Computer in Windows XP

Postby TeMerc » Wed Jul 16, 2008 1:35 am

Have you ever wondered how to remove "Shared Documents" from your My Computer window in Windows XP? If you don't use that feature, it seems rather silly to have it wasting space on the screen when all you really want to do is open up your hard drive or flash drive.

We can disable the shared documents icon easily using a registry hack or through TweakUI, the only problem is that it will also remove the regular user documents from the folder as well…
