Hello Blaklite,

Sorry, but you cannot get rid of that toolbar in Windows Explorer. It's basically the same as the one in Vista, but with a few more features instead.

Actually, there is a way. Works for Vista too.
  1. Download Reshack
  2. In Reshack, navigate to: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor (If you're using another theme, navigate to that folder)
  3. Backup, then open Shellstyle.dll
  4. Navigate to: UIFILE\1\1033
  5. Search for: <style resid="FolderBandStyle">
  6. Under that, you'll find:

    background="argb(0, 0, 0, 0)"

  7. Change it to:

    background="argb(0, 0, 0, 0)"


  8. Click Compile Script and save it somewhere as Shellstyle.dll, then copy to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor and overwrite the original.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Can there be different folder views?
Apologies guys... I have another (what seems to be straight forward question) In Windows Vista you are able to change each folder's view i.e. My digital photo folders use the medium icon thumbnail view, but my apps folder uses the list view and so on... When I change a view in Windows 7 it...
