Windows 7: Any way to delete the bar below the menu bar in Windows Explorer?

Any way to delete the bar below the menu bar in Windows Explorer?

Hi, I'm trying to find a way to delete the bar with the buttons, "Organize", "Include in Library", "Share with", etc. in Windows Explorer when a folder is opened in Windows 7.

I never use the buttons on this bar and it's just taking up screen space.

Hello John,

If you like, the tutorial below can help show you how to remove items on the toolbar (aka: command bar) in Windows Explorer to help.

Hi Brink, and thank you for responding so quickly!

Thank you also for the link and the extensive, detailed tutorial.

I've read the tutorial and I'm wondering which of the options you list (1. Explorer Toolbar Editor, 2. Custom Explorer Toolbar, 3. Manually Remove Command Bar Buttons) will let me just remove the whole Command Bar.

In other words, if I remove all the buttons on the Command Bar using any of the options, will the Command Bar itself just go away?

Thanks again.

The command bar will still be there, but if you remove all of them, it should just be an extra thin line there instead of the usual full size bar.
