How to Hide or Show Folder Merge Conflicts in Windows 10

Let's say: you are moving (or copying) folder "A" from Downloads to Documents. The Documents already contain a folder named "A."

In this case, by default, you will not be notified that the destination folder contains a folder with the same name and the folders will get merged.

Unlike the above situation, if you want to get notified and choose about merging folders, then follow the below steps:

Unselected Hide folder merge conflicts option

​That is all. From now on, you'll be shown a confirmation popup if the destination location contains a folder with the same name while copying or moving a folder into it.

Confirm Folder Replace popup

Note: Keep in mind that the "Hide folder merge conflicts" option does not affect the confirmation popup that appears ​if the destination location has a file with the same name while copying or moving a file into it (see below screenshot).

Replace or Skip Files popup

If you want to go back to the default, select "Hide folder merge conflicts" and then hit "OK."
