Hide folder merge conflicts is a feature which was not available in Windows 7 or earlier.
When you copy or move a folder to a destination that already contains a folder with the same name , a popup appears asking you whether you want to merge both the folder into a single folder which holds the content of both the folders.
Example: Say you copy or move a folder which name is “A” from Downloads to Documents. Documents folder has already contain a subfolder A. By default, you aren’t notified that the destination folder has a folder with the same name and that the folders are merged. This feature has been disabled in Windows 11, 10 and 8. If you wish to be notified and decide on merging folders, please follow the steps below. But before we proceed towards the steps, let us clear two things. The changes will be effective to your user account only.
