Using AxWebBrowser to Browse Files

Hi,

I'm using the AxWebBrowser in a C# WinForms application. I've got
the basics working, but need some help controlling the view options for
browsing files.

How can I disable the "WebView"/Tasks pane on the left side of the
file view?

I've looked around and know it can be done globally from the registry
(HKLU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced -
WebView = 0), but I'd like to control it on a per instance basis when
I initialize the control. I've also found a reference to a NoWebView
flag that can be set in a VB form file, but can't find it or
equivalent on the AxWebBrowser control.

I also wouldn't mind being able to toggle on/off the "Folders"
taskpane as well. I haven't really looked into this either, but saw
a NoFolders flag where I saw the NoWebView flag.

Things I've tried that don't work:
1) axWebBrowser.PutProperty("NoWebView", 1) - api is probably not
meant for this
2) Setting the AxWebBrowser.ViewOptions property - read-only, but
values look like what I want

Or is there a better control/class to use for a File Explorer?

Thanks,

-beau
