JSI Tip 5942. How can I set 'Display the contents of system folders' using the Windows XP registry?

When you open Folder Options and select the View tab, you can check or uncheck the Display the contents of system folders box.

To check this option via the registry:

Copy /Paste the following to a WebViewBarricade.reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\]
"WebViewBarricade"=dword:00000001

2. Merge the WebViewBarricade.reg file with the user's registry or run regedit /s WebViewBarricade.reg.

3. The user must log off and log on for this setting to take effect.

To uncheck this option via the registry:

Copy /Paste the following to a WebViewBarricade.reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\]
"WebViewBarricade"=dword:00000000

2. Merge the WebViewBarricade.reg file with the user's registry or run regedit /s WebViewBarricade.reg.

3. The user must log off and log on for this setting to take effect.
