Open Explorer with a Single panel

When you use [Window] + [E] to open a Windows Explorer window, it opens in the two-panel layout. To have it open with a single pane by default, do the following.
1- In the Registry Editor, navigate to
2- Double-click on (Default) and change the string to
[ ViewFolder (“%1”, %I, %S)] (Including the brackets)
3- To revert to the double-pane windows, set to
[ ExploreFolder (“%1”, %I, %S)]


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
