Windows 7: Explorer Buttons

Explorer Buttons

Ok now that I have an "ok" start menu to replace the limited 7 menu, I now find myself getting frustrated with the lack of buttons at the of an explorer window. I would like to have at very least a delete button.
I had been using Qtask in Vista, but for some reason in 7 the buttons don't show up unless you turn them off and back on every time you open explorer.

So any 3rd party apps out there to add a delete button to the top of windows explorer in 64 bit 7?

yeah I would love to see something like that. Its such a shame that they dropped customisation of the explorer buttons, it was so much better in XP when you could choose which buttons to add. You think now that its just plain text instead of icons it would not take much work for some reguarly used comands

Hi and welcome to seven forums

Did you install Qtask as admin in compatibility mode? If not you might want to un-install and try it that way. Sometimes 64 bit can be slightly problematic in terms of 3rd party ultils, and im not familiar with qtask

My bad, it is QtTabBar, great add on that ads tabs and buttons to explorer.

I will try reinstalling it, though I am already logged in as admin.
