Sorry for interrupting but how did you remove those icons from the top left?
Are you talking about the navigation buttons?

Hi Bongo, sorry for the late reply. No I meant the Icon just above that (I have selected a purple square to show that and then realised it is because it is Windows Explorer doesn't show the Top Left Icon. However I would love to know how you got text to show at the top of an explorer window.

Thanks, it worked , I am assuming it actually modifies the explorer.exe so if you replace it with a new explorer.exe you will need to rerun the tool?

No I have it in my startup folder and I have never had to rerun it for anything.
