Turning off Windows folder default warni

By Dana Bensen ·
Under Win9x, when you go into Windows Explorer and select the Windows folder, it gives you the default warning about deleting any files can harm your Windows installation.

This is fine and dandy for novice users, however, it's a pain in the butt for advanced users who work with computers on a daily basis.

How does one turn off this setting? Or selectively turn it back on (in case you need to turn it back on when you allocate a PC to a novice user)?

Turning off Windows folder default warni

Right click on the warning page, properties, and select archive. Close the folder and re-open it.

Good luck!

In windows 98' rename the folder.htt file found in c:\windows and c:windows\system to folder.bak, then copy the folder.htt file from c:\windows\web to c:\windows and c:\windows\system.

Folder.htt is a hidden file so make sure to show all files.
Unfortunately 95' does not have this file and I do not know of a way to work around it.

The information of how to make the change in 98' is in Q184963.
