I think Ivo has answered your question .... It works as per your requirement.
Those 3rd-party explorers are god-awful, and Classic Shell clumsily removes the search box from the search window, which I use.

Thanks anyway, guys.

What do you mean it removed from windows??? There is an option to only hide the search bar from explorer which you want.... Rest everything will there as is
.. I have tried it myself before I commented here....

Hi, ivo,

No. I want to remove the search box from normal Explorer windows only, not including the search window activated by Win+F.

We seriously dont understand!!! You want to remove from explorer and still keep the functionality of search for other areas.. classic shell does that by hiding the search box from explorer..

As a common sense.. when you use Win+F... its going to use Windows explorer itself !!!!

Sorry but we are all mere mortal who understand less of computers and windows than you do !!
