In Windows 8 My Computer changed its name to this computer and in Windows 10, This computer, except the hard drives, still shows other folders: Video, Downloads, Music, Documents, Images, Desktop, and many of these are useless.
It is possible to hide these folders, not delete them, and that is the way you can make “This PC” look in Windows 7. This guide will show you how to delete the “This PC” folders in Windows 10.

Go to Options => System => about the system, or click File Explorer => Properties => System Type
Now, download the created “.rig” file and select 32-bit or 64-bit and open the folder where you will find everything you need to delete all the folders of “This Computer” – you need to run the file “Remove All User Folders From This PC “- file 32 or 64-bit.

In addition, there are files in the folders to delete unnecessary folders individually.
In the registry, these folders can be found along the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ MyComputer \ NameSpace \ from where you can delete everything you need.
