Hide the 3D Objects folder from your personal folders

In Windows, experiments and proposals appear and disappear all the time. Some of these proposals end up staying and even evolving, but others simply fall by the wayside.

On many occasions, they try to "sell" us a proposal at any cost, and although it is clear that users are not for the work, they keep them as stains that do not come out even with pure chlorine.

One of those proposals is Paint 3D. An attempt by Microsoft to offer us the ability to "tinker" with 3D.

A program that would be more than interesting if the Paint of a lifetime did not exist. As an alternative to the beloved Paint, it remains simply interesting but not enough to encourage us to voluntarily make the change. And as a 3D tool ... How do I explain it? ... there are applications in this area that are passable, bad, terrible and Paint 3D.

Just as we have the Music, Videos, Documents, etc ... folders in the personal documents section, Paint 3D has its own folder called 3D Objects where to save and maintain a collection of 3D objects.

Honestly, I've never used it for anything and I don't know anyone who uses it either. It goes unnoticed and never has content. Normally nobody gives importance to it and it ends up being simply part of the set.

Its usefulness is so little that Microsoft itself has eliminated it in one of its latest development builds of what will be version 21H2, a version that we hope we will have available by the end of this year.

If you are a retailer and you do not want to see that 3D Objects folder in the personal folders section again, but you do not want to wait for Windows itself to do it voluntarily, in the following lines we will see how to do it by deleting a couple of entries from the Windows registry . Basically we will be doing the same thing that Windows itself will do in the second update of the year 2021.

This time we will not be modifying or creating new keys in the Registry ... we are going to delete two entries, which is delicate ... not really dangerous or dramatic ... but delicate. That is why we strongly recommend that you make backup copies before manipulating anything.

In a Windows search, we type regedit and run Registry Editor on the results.

In the Registry Editor, we navigate to

Computer \ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Wow6432Node \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ MyComputer \ NameSpace \ {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}

Right click on the folder {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}

And in the pop-up submenu, we select the Delete option

We will get a confirmation message. Click on Yes

Next we navigate to

Computer \ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ MyComputer \ NameSpace \ {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}

Right click on the folder {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}

And just like before, we remove that entry

We will need to restart the computer for the changes to take effect.

After the restart we will no longer see the 3D Objects folder among our personal folders.

We haven't actually removed it. He is still present in the team. We can access it by navigating to

% userprofile%

in File Explorer

If we use the backup copies of the previous two registry entries (if we did them as we suggested) we can revert this change and return things to their original state.
