Explorer\Shell Folders

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2



Windows Server 2003 does not use this subkey. The subkey remains in the registry to support programs designed for Windows NT 4.0 or earlier.


  • Paths to the Windows Explorer folders are stored in the Explorer\User Shell Folders subkey. For more information about shell folders, see the Software Development Kit (SDK) information in the MSDN Library link on the Web Resources page.


  • Do not delete this subkey or its entries from the registry, and do not change the values in the entries. These changes can cause serious, unexpected results.
