Traditional address bar in Windows explorer

How can i activate classic address bar in win 7 Ultimate? I mean, when you press Windows key + E, it opens Windows explorer and i'd like that address bar to work like in Windows Xp. Sorry if this was confusing text, English is not my native tongue

What features from XP exactly do you want in Win7? There are many differences between the two Explorers. Some can be fixed and others can't. If you list the ones you care about we can help you find solutions.

Whenever in Windows explorer (Xp) you push the down icon next to address bar at right side of the upper screen it shows disks, desktop, control panel etc. Now, i want to (in Windows 7) that address bar to work like in Xp. In Windows 7 the address bar only gives addresses what you have already used.

Yes, try Classic Shell. Look at the Title Bar settings, particularly "Address bar history". It controls the contents of the dropdown list in the address bar. There is also an option to disable the breadcrumbs if you are into such sort of things.

This is something I've wanted to do for a long time. In Windows XP, you were able to unlock the toolbars and move them around freely, including the Address Bar.
