Hello bunny,

Other than the options in the tutorial, you could use the free program Classic Shell to customize with.

Hey Brink cheers for the quick reply. I'm trying to minimize 3rd party apps for this build. I guess I'll do without it. Thanks for all the awesome tweaks and tutorials you've put up, they've been super helpful.
