Windows 7: Auto-Hide Navigation Pane [REQ]

Auto-Hide Navigation Pane [REQ]

Hey, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to auto hide the navigation pane? If not is there a way to increase to amount of space I am allowed to drag it over so that I cover the items in the menu?

Thanks for the help :]

P.S. While I'm at it can anyone list a program that can change the shellstyle fonts? I was using MMicroangelo On Display but the program continuously messed up with my icon editing so I was forced to erase it. I may reinstall it if I can't find a suitable alternative.

EDIT: Wow, I'm making amateur spelling mistakes tonight.

Being I've gotten no response (probably because there is no program or I'm impatient) I went ahead and created a little work around in the form of registry files. I also use my system tray to store the two scripts separately (One with a red light icon, the other with a green light).

This isn't a really great work around as I was not looking to disable the pane like I did the folderband, but it will work until someone gives me something better.

Now I'm wondering what the best context menu editor is? I have a few context menus I need to clear up, and I'd like to group some context items.
