I know that last one is going to change a lot of other text color, and I'm not sure if it's possible to change those in the shellstyle.dll.

Thanks, Jerry, but I just found out how to do it in shellstyle.dll. It was line 663.

Found it in WSB! I searched for "Details" and replaced the results with blank PNGs.

Which "Details" was it, after you click on the Details in the tree then backspace the search and the tree will open the the Details that you clicked on, then right click on it in the tree and copy to clipboard and paste it here.
