Can anyone please help me in rearranging items in the toolbar of the windows explorer.

On mine, the last caption is customize. Put your cursor and wait a drop down will appear.

Nop...I didn't get any thing....Is there any other way to enable that...mine is Win 7 64 bit professional...

Can we get it by doing some thing in registry or gpedit.msc.......

I think we may have a bit of confusion here - I think the OP is talking about Windows Explorer and not Internet Explorer.

As far as I am aware there is no simple tweak to adjust the toolbar in Windows Explorer without editing the coding and components as is done for changing the Theme.

Internet explorer does contain the customisation option on the right click

I just saw the above post and must apologize. I was referring to IE, sorry.

The amount of confusion the naming of those two Microsoft major components have caused over the years is legendary.

I always try to answer the "which explorer" question now before I even think of an answer.

I may of course be wrong in my assumption but the reference to "Burn" would suggest Windows Explorer

It is possible to reorder the buttons but requires heavy registry editing. Including changing permissions of several keys before the edits can be made.

You can re-arrange the order of the buttons, remove buttons and add additional buttons (such as delete, rename, select all).

The only thing is I cant locate the view button. Only the buttons that are on the left side of the toolbar (burn, share etc).

I can post the steps if anyone is interested?
