Here’s how it works at Windows Registry and Folder options.

folderoptions

When the option is checked and unchecked at Folder options window, Windows registry changes its value. Here’s the registry folder located and what value is affected:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

ShowStatusBar = 1 or 0

The default value is 1 and when the option is checked – the status bar is shown or enabled and it gives a value of 1. When unchecked the ShowStatusBar registry value is set to 0 for the option and the Status Bar is hidden.
