So in order to do that it’s very simple go ahead and select the file tab left click on it and then select export, the filename just name it something that makes sense usually I would suggest a deed in which you’re making the backup and then save it to the mean location on your computer make sure export range is selected to all.

And then just click the Save button when you’re ready to confirm, so once you’ve made your backup you want to go expand the HP current user folder it’s either double click on it or left little little arrow next to to expand the drop down.

Now you want to go ahead and do the same for the software folders so go ahead and expand that. should be a folder is as Microsoft expand that one as well. Scroll down a little bit on this page or less thingy until you get to Windows go ahead double click on that.

Current version folder again all we’ve been doing you want to expand that folder and should be a policies folder a little bit further down on here. Expand that one as well and then finally there is an explorer folder appears right underneath that tree.

Now on the right side here you want to go right-click on a blank area, select new and then select d-word 32-bit value. Now this is very important here guys okay I’m gonna have it up on the screen in the video you can see it on the screen and I will also have text on the screen pretty big letters here so just make sure you type in exactly as it appears.

So type in no so NoWinKeys, please note there are no spaces in here at all so again no wind keys and once you have it exactly as it appears on my screen and that’s very important guys.

And just add value data at the zero, select ok once you’re done with that go ahead and close out of here and hopefully that should have been able to resolve your problem guys.
