Its not really straightforward, but according to this post:

You can use the API to uncheck the System Explorer..Files..Is Project Directory checkbox. As far as I tested today, the checkbox remains disabled through the user interface and only responds to the API. You can use the following line of code with Python:


@Sandrine Auriol said she was going to check why the checkbox wasn’t available through the user interface with the developers.
