   *

      Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ CLSID \ {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
    \ ShellFolder

    *

      Backup the key by exporting it to a REG file. See method 2 here
    *

      In the right-pane, create a new REG_DWORD value named Attributes
    *

      Double-click Attributes and set 20180000 as the Value data

If you want to undo the changes, delete the Attributes value.
