But replace shellstyle.dll in the "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor" directory.

run CMD as administrator

tskill explorer [press enter]
explorer [press enter]

<Element padding="rect(0rp,0rp,0rp,-32rp)"/>

Save and replace this in the shellstyle.dll.
Hello,

I've followed instructions above and it works great !
But only for classic interface - if I switch to win7 basic or win7 aero - stupid explorer bar is back again.
Any ideas how to fix that ?

thanks

Hey,

Could anyone upload the edited .dll so that I don't have to install Resource Hacker etc.
I run Windows 7 64bit by the way.

Thanks!
