Just perform the following :

Create such a key in registry: HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\CLSID\{4F12FF5D-D319-4A79-8380-9CC80384DC08}
Create a string value in this key called “AppID”, set its value to “{9198DA45-C7D5-4EFF-A726-78FC547DFF53}”
and Restart explorer

Update: We have created a tool, which would help you to unlock this and other features with a click. You can download the tool from here.
