Hi guys!

I have two questions on how to delete items in the Explorer Bar/Picture
Tasks
I would like to delete the two items:
Get picture from camera or scanner
Order prints online
Could someone tell me the location of the key in the registry, I
don't want to install any soft that, will solve this problem and
create a new one.
Problem 2:
The view preference "thumbnails" in my picture folder is never
saved! Each time I open the folder I have to set it on again! The
problem is that my pict folder is not in the System disk.

Nobody can help?

You can use Group Policy.

Administrative Templates\System\Internet Communication Management\Internet
Communication settings\Turn off the Order Prints picture task

[[If you enable this setting, the task Order Prints Online is removed from
Picture Tasks in Windows Explorer folders.]]

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
NoOnlinePrintsWizard

Turn off the Order Prints picture task

To remove the Get picture from camera or scanner. Disable the Windows Image
Acquisition (WIA) service. If you plug your scanner in and have WIA service
running you will see Get picture from camera or scanner. If you leave
scanner plugged in and disable WIA you don't see Get picture from camera or
scanner. I do not have a camera, so I know nothing about that. I do not
know of any other way to get rid of it.
