Moving Connected Web Files and Folders

Whenever web files and folders are connected, you may move primary .htm or .html files along with other files related to the primary document. If you would like to move the primary document and want to tag on all related files, you can create a sub-folder using the same file name as the primary document. However, you should assign the sub-folder a .files extension. Whenever you move the primary document, the sub-folder will tag along and will remain a sub-folder of the primary document.

Here’s how to connect your web files and folders.

  1. Click on Start and go to Run. Enter regedit. Your registry editor will pop up.
  2. Look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER. You will find this on the left side of the registry editor. Expand the folder by clicking on the cross on the left.
  3. Next, go to Software. Expand the folder and look for Microsoft.
  4. Expand Microsoft and go to Windows. Look for CurrentVersion.
  5. Expand CurrentVersion. This should take you to Explorer.
  6. Look at the right hand side of the registry editor. If you see NoFileFolderConnection, jump ahead to step seven. If you don’t, follow the instructions below to create the value.
    Right click on the right hand side of the registry editor.

    Select New and then select DWORD.

    Rename the value NoFileFolderConnection. You may also right click on the new DWORD value and select Rename.

  7. Double click on NoFileFolderConnection. A new box will come up.
  8. Enter 0 if you want to enable connection. This setting is the default setting. If you want to disable connection, enter 1.
  9. Exit the registry and reboot.
