Top shellstyle

Anyone know how or where I can get a top shellstyle?
And how to change the back/forward buttons inside explorerframe. I did it before but my explorer crashed.

Much appreciated.

i do not know what you mean by 'top shellstyle'
however editing the explorer frame can be accomplished in two ways

1. Visit the 'door2windows' website they have a small free utility that edits
the explorer frame parts .... however the images are very specific
and no example images are provided.

2. Download Resource Hacker (also free) allows you to edit *.dll files
the explorer frame is C:\windows\system32\explorerframe.dll
If you use 64 bit windows you need to make the same changes to the file
in syswow64. After editing replace both files and restart. dont forget to back up
the originals..

I replied because I am currently playing with this as well. I have edited my images
and the computer is running fine but the original images are still displayed.
I dont get it but will figure it out soon. some of the new images show sometimes
but not all all the time as hoped.
