Disk Space Notification.

In windows explorer, all the disk drives show their total size and space utilised. Nice look, but if I want, can I disable (and re-enable) that disk size and utilisation information? In short, how can I make the windows 7 explorer look like XP?

Look at the attached file, the red circled item, under the min,max and close buttons, keep clicking it until it appears the way you like.

I think there's one that looks like XP in there.

Is not it possible to get rid of that blue bat in Tiles View?

Nope, the only way that u can get that to go away, will involve patching system files, so you can install a custom theme, that removes that.

Can you please suggest me such a custom theme ? I have uxtheme multipatcher installed and a lot of third party themes, but none of them keeps that thing away.

There are none that do what you would like it to do atm, maybe u can have a chat to one of our fine members sporting the Dark Purple "GFX" badge, and see if they can make you something more to your liking.
