      What is the 3D Object Folder in Windows 10?

      As mentioned above, when you visit File Explorer, you see a folder that gets this name. This is a folder intended as the name says, to contain files or 3D objects. These are stored here when using Microsoft Paint 3D to create 3D models.

      How to delete or remove 3D objects folder in Windows 10?

      As we told you earlier, you can delete or remove the 3D Objects folder in Windows 10 using a couple of quick and easy methods. The same thing happens when you want to remove the "Edit with Paint 3D" option from the context menu.

      How to delete or remove 3D objects folder in Windows 10 from registry editor

      This is the most common way to delete the 3D Objects folder, as it doesn't require as many steps. To do this you must first open the registry editor in Windows 10 .

      Then, when you are already in the drop-down window, you should go to the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Explorer MyComputer NameSpace.

      When you are in this path, you now need to search for the key named {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A} , select it, right click on it and click on delete.

      Now go to the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerMyComputerNameSpace and in this you have to locate and eliminate the key {0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}. To delete it, repeat the process you performed with the first deleted key.

      After that, you will be able to close the Registry Editor window, but now you should reopen File Explorer and you will notice that the 3D objects folder is missing. There will be no trace of it if you follow this practical and fast method.

      How to restore the folder you just deleted

      In case you need this folder to store 3D objects and you regret deleting the folder, you can restore it. The way to do it is open notepad first and copy the following code: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerMyComputerNameSpace{0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A}]

      Then you have to save this file with extension .reg . Give the file a name that is easy to identify and then you need to double click on the file you just created. A message will appear asking you if you want to continue with the action and you have to click on the Yes option . And then the key will be restored and the folder will reappear in File Explorer.

      If you are using the 64-bit version of Windows 10, you will need to copy two keys to Notepad: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Explorer MyComputerNameSpace{0DB7E03F-FC29-4DC6-9020-FF41B59E513A} ] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWOW6432NodeMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerMyComputerNameSpace{0DBFC7-FFC03-F -FF29B4E6A}]

      Save this file again as we did with the 32-bit version of Windows 10 and when the message appears, click Yes to restore the folder. Then you can start adding 3D effects to your photos in Windows 10.

      As you may have noticed, you don't need to be a computer professional to delete the 3D objects folder. Rather, it just takes a couple of minutes and a willingness to delete that pesky folder.
