    First, let's add folder shortcuts to My Compu... err.... This PC, that the average user can't remove without a registry hack.
    (HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/MyComputer/NameSpace)
    Next, let's do the same thing in 32-bit programs like Firefox: same thing, can't remove without a registry hack. (Same place, but involves Wow6432Node this time.)
    Now, let's add folders and shortcuts you can't remove without a registry hack in the DESKTOP folder!!!XB1 (Note these can only be viewed in Explorer, not the desktop itself.)

    I do NOT have SkyDrive, HomeGroup, the User Folder, Control Panel, or the Network folder on my desktop!
    Sorry to say, but 8.1 has been an annoyance for me, despite being 110% accustomed to 8.0.

    Agree that some of the folder changes they did are quite stupid, especially don't like the folders pinned to 'My PC'
    I also hate that they renamed Computer to My PC.

    My frustration has been trying to get my SkyDrive folder to stay in the File Explorer favorites list. I add it and then it disappears from there. I've done it three or four times and it just won't stick.
