Windows 7: Custom file & folder options tool/task bar

21 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7264
Custom file & folder options tool/task bar

I have windows 7 build 7264 running with no problems, but I cant seem to find a way to change the file & folder options toolbar thing in explorer. You know, the bar at the top that gives you the options: Include in library, Share with, Burn, etc. I would like to remove the options I dont use & add ones from xp like Delete & Copy to folder. I realize I can still do these things from the right click context menu but its an extra step, I liked the file & folder tasks pane in xp, wish there was a way to use it on Windows 7. But if I could atleast have that option at the top would be nice. Believe me I been googling for hours & cant find a thing cept other people requesting the file & folder tasks pane from xp. Any help would really make my day Thanx in advance.....

Could be because maybe there is no way? But if you find a way of making the Libraries entry disappear from the Win Explorer left pane let me know .

where theres a will there's a way

I know they (microsoft) have made these changes for a reason, but I dont like it. I just figured I'm not the only one who wants to do this, I mean who wants a burn button there, or send to email, most people use 3rd party software for that. Someone out there must know the right part of the registry to modify, I did come acroos something about removing the library, I'll get back with you on that one.
