Can I change the Win 7 folder menu look?

I recently went from Xp home 32-bit to Win 7 home 64-bit and there is one thing that its annoying to me I would love to change but I do not know if it can be changed or how to do so if if it can.

Now to be very specific I linked to what i would like to have changed.



i would like to change that to this look:



see that folder with the green arrow under the favorites menu. that is what I'd lvoe to have back again.

i do not like this whole my computer->c:->Program files-> winamp-> skins(that is an example) and to go back have to click on on the previous folder name. It would be nice to have that button again. so i can move back to the previous folder easier and faster. as well as the back button so i can click move quicker between folders.

This will give you the up button. it won't be green arrow but a blue arrow. + alot of other things from old school windows.

The classic shell did the job, just got one other question, Is there a shell or extension for web browsers like Firefox so when you are saving files is also acts like how XP would instead of having the same thing I asked about regarding folders?

Looks like you tried Classic Shell and get some features to work but later they disappeared. Can you elaborate a bit?
