I have been creating a script to modify the registry entries, setting my own paths for the app downloads and portable apps etc...

The problem is that there is 3 values that always default back to false when I launch the program, even if I set them to true in the registry.

These problematic values that seems to be hardcoded and always rewrite themselves to false in the registry at program launch are :

- Visible_Panel_MiscellaneousApps (Always default back to false at program launch)
- Visible_Panel_MediaToolsApps (Same)
- Visible_Panel_GraphicsApps (Same)

Don't know if it is a bug or intended, but as the others panels are taking my own values, it looks like a bug to me.

Under visual options if you check "Disable Auto-Collapsing Of Groups With No Application Installed" does it not change?

You were right, I just added this line to my script and now it works :

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Patch My PC\Options" /v "DisableAutoCollapsingOfGroups" /t "REG_SZ" /d "1" /f

I didn't saw that option, as the default windows was truncating the whole text without resizing.

Thanks  :)
