#1
I see the command bar has been removed so I would check the images at
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > CommandModule > <1>
Explorer & Shell > Explorer > Menu Bar > Background
Toolbars, Headers and Rebar > Rebar > Rebar
maybe some of them are showing up still?

#2 & #3 are in ExplorerFrame.dll Bitmap # 288 at C:\Windows\System32
+ #2 is at
Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Boxes > ComboBox > DropDownButtonRight > Glyph Image, DPI 96

I do not know about the trash icon sorry.

The buttons I do not know but you could mess with the Sizing Margins or the Content Margins at
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > CloseButton > Normal Button > Active
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > CloseButton > Normal Button > Inactive
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Minimize/Help Button > Button > Active
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Minimize/Help Button > Button > Inactive
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Restore/Maximize Button > Button > Active
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Restore/Maximize Button > Button > Inactive
Or the Atlasrect:rect of the Glyph under the Button locations above
NOTE I HAVE NEVER DONE THIS WITH THE BUTTONS SO TRY IT ON A COPY 1st AT YOUR RISK.

thank you guys, i managed to removed some resources in explorerframe.dll (bitmap #288) and others to clear the address bar in explorer. but with the breadcrumb icon i guess its a code within explorerframe, but i would not mess up. i also found out that caption button spacing is hard coded, and can only be centered if you mess up with the code. the only thing that bugs me is the folder band margin which is always there despite erasing the contents in Explorer & Shell>Explorer>CommandModule><1> and also readjusting Explorerframe padding by -77rp at the last line.

@Neutron16 i modified shine 2.0 visual style by zainadeel, im not allowed to release my mod.

I do not understand what you mean by the white margin becomes dark?
The taskbar always has a slight blur to it.

Try editing the image here (remove the color)
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Reflections > Main
If that's not it let me know

@Jerry the white gradient was still there when i removed it. i think the reflections are the window images (the white bands) when aero peek is active.
