I open the folders in different windows. That's why it works for me and covers my needs.

Ah ok, right. Do you think there's any way to fix it?

One thing I've also noticed, if you use the address bar hider and you resize the window, and then open a new folder in the same window, the address bar will hide again. I've noticed the address bar quickly popping up when switching between windows, so I wonder if that might have anything to do with it becoming (partially) visible when resizing windows.

This script should work in your case:

Code:
#NoTrayIcon
#NoEnv
Gui +LastFound
hWnd := WinExist()
SetBatchLines -1
SetControlDelay, -1

DllCall( "RegisterShellHookWindow", UInt,hWnd )
MsgNum := DllCall( "RegisterWindowMessage", Str,"SHELLHOOK" )
OnMessage( MsgNum, "ShellMessage" )
Return
 
ShellMessage(wParam,lParam) {
   If (wParam = 1 or wParam = 6) ;  HSHELL_WINDOWCREATED := 1
   {
WinGetClass, WinClass, ahk_id %lParam%

if (WinClass = "CabinetWClass") {
Sleep, 100
Control, ExStyle, ^0x200, FolderView, ahk_id %lParam%

WinSet, Redraw,, ahk_id %lParam%
WinGetPos, , , , h, ahk_id %lParam%
WinMove, ahk_id %lParam%,,,,,h-1
WinMove, ahk_id %lParam%,,,,,h
   }
   }
}

Try this:
1.) Have the address bar remover enabled
2.) Resize the window so the address bar re-appears
3.) Right-click on the title bar

It will disappear, I think. Any shell event makes it disappear again.

Yes, that is the same result I got.

Also, I would love to help you out with this. Do you think you can send me a link to an AutoHotKey scripting tutorial/help site? I'll try to learn this stuff, and then I'll do what I can to help you out with this.

Sorry, I mostly used the help file coming with AHK. Actually one can do the same using other programming languages, say, Visual Basic.
