    What the
    "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\UsersFiles\NameSpace\Folders" registry key is used for? Is it safe to delete its subkeys?

    I don't know specifically what that key is used for, but its location says
    that it is setting or configuration common to all accounts, probably to do
    with what appears in one of the Windows Explorer frames. Deleting any
    registry key without a specific purpose is foolhardy at best.

    Thanks for your response. The reason why I would like to delete/rename this
    key is that I have moved Documents folder from my user profile and now there
    are two "Documents" folders under Desktop\<UserName> in Windows Explorer.
    When this registry key is deleted/renamed only one "Documents", the moved
    one, is there. Now the question is if this is safe to do it.

    I'd make a backup of the key (file/export), then remove it. If other issues
    are found, and I suspect they won't be, then you can always import it back.
