Windows 7: Custom folder layout

Custom folder layout

Hello! I am looking for a way to have one folder have a custom "Layout" that hides the details pane and the navigation pane. I like having both of those panes normally in every other Windows explorer window, but I have a Games folder quicklaunched that has only game shortcuts in it that I would like to have a nice clean look to.

Are there any apps or registry tweaks that would allow me to customize just a single folder's "Organize >> Layout" scheme?

Thank you in advance for any info on this!

For this one folder so far I've found an app that lets you choose a custom background image just for that folder and a way to remove shortcut arrows from shortcut icons. Now all I need is those cumbersome eyesore panes to go away for this one window!

Welcome to the Seven Forums darktree
I am sorry to tell you this but it's one way or the other for Windows Explorer you can have both.

Thank you for the response. I feel welcome. I'm hesitant to mark this as solved as there may be a hack hiding out there or maybe in the future someone will make one!

Thank you, Bongo
