[SOLVED]Customize Windows Explorer Settings using PowerShell

Hi Everyone,

So this question came up in our PowerShell UG Meet.
How can we customize windows explorer using PowerShell ?
Here’s an example : By default Windows Explorer hides the extension of the files…to see those we need to go to Organize > Folder and Search Options in the Explorer windows and make changes , as shown below:
a user uploaded image

Can I achieve the same using PowerShell ?
I tried Google but can’t seem to get what I desire there.

Thanks for helping :slight_smile:

Not directly. You’d have to find wherever that is kept in the registry and modify it that way, which you can do with PowerShell.

Thanks Don Sir,

Making changes to registry makes better sense :slight_smile:
I just found out that this question had already been there in stackoverflow, below is the link

Thanks a lot again
