[Solved] Windows Explorer Favorites Link Removal


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

Hi there,


I experienced the same problem with the reappearing BitTorrent Sync icon in the Favorites list of the Windows Explorer.


Deleting it and a reinstallation of BitTorrent Sync didn't help <_<


What worked for me: In the Windows registry, there are some entries under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BitTorrent\Sync]


- (Standard)

- ShellExtensionPath64

- ShellExtensionPath86

- ShellMenuSharingEnable


In my case, there was another entry called: "StoragePath"


I removed the "StoragePath" entry and the icon from the favorites. Since then it didn't reappear.


Hope that helps ;)
