Windows 11 - Remove Linux from File Explorer Navigation Pane Tree

If you see Linux in the Windows Explorer tree and wish to remove it, in case you don't use WSL, here's the proper way to do it:

Open either Powershell, CMD or Terminal as admin and type:

reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{B2B4A4D1-2754-4140-A2EB-9A76D9D7CDC6}" D:\Linux_Reg_Backup.reg /y

reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{B2B4A4D1-2754-4140-A2EB-9A76D9D7CDC6}" /f

* The first command is meant to backup the registry key to drive D:  just in case you'll want to undo the change. Feel free to back it up to any other location you desire. This is optional but recommended.

* The second command will delete the key.

* The change is immediate. There's no need to restart or log-off.
