Windows 10 introduced a feature called “File Explorer Checkbox,” which allows you to enable/disable certain features like “Open With…”, “Always open in browser”, etc. This feature is very useful because it lets you choose what apps are used to view files without having to go into each app separately. However, there are times where you don’t want to use this feature, such as when you’re trying to save some space on your hard disk. In this article we’ll show you how to turn off those checkboxes completely.
Step 5: Close the window and restart your computer.
This method works on both 32bit and 64bit versions of Windows 10. If you find any issues while following the steps mentioned above, let us know via comments section.
In Windows 10, there are three different ways to open files. One way is to double-click on the file icon. Another way is to press Ctrl+O. And finally, you can use the checkbox next to the file name.
The checkbox allows you to select multiple items quickly. You can drag and drop files into it too. But why does Microsoft include this option?
According to Microsoft, the checkbox is meant to make finding files easier.
To disable an item in the List, simply select the item, and set its value to zero.

If you upgraded to Windows 10 recently, there are some things you might want to know about rolling back to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. Microsoft announced it would allow customers to roll back to previous versions of Windows 10 within 10 days of installing the latest version. This applies to both upgrades and clean installs. You can use this feature to return to Windows 7 or Windows8.1.
There is a 10 day period after upgrading to Windows 10 where you can downgrade to Window 10. If you don’t like what you see, you can reinstall Windows again.
Reinstalling Windows will solve the issue caused by the “check box.”
