Shell Folders



Windows 2000 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 User Shell Folders subkey. For more information about shell folders, see 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.
