You guys liked the tutorials so I decided to share some more interesting tutorials with you all.

Following tutorials will help you in customizing almost each and everything of Command Bar (aka Folder Band or Toolbar) in Windows 7.

It'll help you in:

Moving Command Bar to bottom of Windows Explorer - [link]

Auto-hide Command Bar - [link]

Add new buttons to Command Bar - [link]

Remove unwanted buttons from Command Bar - [link]

Remove Preview Pane button - [link]

Remove Get Help button - [link]

Remove Burn button - [link]

Customize Organize and Layout menus - [link]

For your convenience, I have uploaded a ZIP file containing links to all these tutorials.

Feel free to ask any kind of questions. :)

Yudhistira Vidhiatama @ yvidhiatama.deviantart.com/ had a small app on his page that would easily do this, but he removed it, and his reason is so stupid.

I have not tried but might be possible by editing explorerframe.dll file.

Check the UIFILE section. It might contain the code to show addressbar, etc in Explorer.

Do you think i could tax your brain and ask how to add (Sort by) menu from the right click context menu and put it on the command bar. I have tried getting the windows 8 reg files from the ribbon command store with no success.
HOPE YOU CAN HELP. Thanks
