Like most people, you probably have absolutely no use for the 3D Objects folder that Windows 10 has decided to include. Here’s how you can remove it from the file manager (File Explorer) in Windows 10.

  1. Start out by downloading the very small (and completely free) app, Ultimate Windows Tweaker. Visit this page and click the Download Ultimate Windows Tweaker button. Once it’s finished, extract the contents of the .zip file to your Downloads folder, open the newly created folder and run the Ultimate Windows Tweaker.exe file.

  3. There is no installation for UWT4, so it will just run. You may be notified that the software is from an unknown source – select Yes and/or Run anyway when prompted. UWT4 is a widely used and reputable app.
  4. When it opens, select Customization from the navigation pane on the left side of the window.
