I would love to hear your suggestions on how to improve my utility! Please spread the word!

If I could kiss you I would, LOL. This is JUST what I had been thinking about, a program like this. Thank you.
Thanks for your app, it's small but works nicely! 
In the new Windows 10 version, there is a `3D Objects` folder that your app doesn't detect and remove. Please consider remove it if you have time. 
In case you don't afraid of showing your code, I suggest you push code to Github and get someone to co-operate to improve it! 
Regards, Luke. 
Really useful tweak!. But yesterday it stopped working. No error message, just starts to open the window then stops before the window is drawn. Any suggestions?

Try the following:

In my case this issue appears, if folder "3D Objects" (3D Objekte) was renamed (like setting a "-" in front of the registry-entry) or deleted (not tested, because I always rename it!) in registry in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace" and / or "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace".

Try to reset this entry to default and try to open FolderTweak again!
