Sorry but could someone better explain what these instructions mean? :)

 

OldNewExplorer can override UIFILES from most files loaded by explorer.exe.
To take advantage of this, add UIFILES to your ShellStyle.dll named the following way:
Example:
SHELL32.DLL UIFILE 23 -> SHELLSTYLE.DLL SHELL32_UIFILE 23
EXPLORERFRAME.DLL UIFILE 20482 -> SHELLSTYLE.DLL EXPLORERFRAME_UIFILE 20482

 

and,

 

WARNING: custom resource types are not loaded from ShellStyle.dll if it has MUI resource pair.
Merge it with mui file and remove MUI resource.

 

Thanks.

Please try to capture crash dump, because I'm unable to reproduce the issue. Some "anti-spyware" or shell extension may affect this.

Can you please also add the possibility to hide the navigation bar (address bar and the nav buttons)? The following AHK script does it but it is unreliable:

#NoTrayIcon
#NoEnv
Gui +LastFound
hWnd := WinExist()
SetControlDelay, -1
SetBatchLines -1

DllCall( "RegisterShellHookWindow", UInt,hWnd )
MsgNum := DllCall( "RegisterWindowMessage", Str,"SHELLHOOK" )
OnMessage( MsgNum, "ShellMessage" )
Return
 
ShellMessage(wParam,lParam) {
   If (wParam = 1 ) ;  HSHELL_WINDOWCREATED := 1
   {

WinGetClass, WinClass, ahk_id %lParam%
if (WinClass = "CabinetWClass") {

ControlGetPos, ,y1,,ha,ReBarWindow321, ahk_id %lParam%

SendMessage, 0x0082,,,ReBarWindow321, ahk_id %lParam%

   }
}
}

 

So to arrive to something like this:

Hello. I want to change the navigation buttons. But we need buttons of green color. Can you give me the files of such buttons? I would replace them myself in dll.

It's amazing to see how File Explorer has evolved over the years but still kept its original core. Anixx's screenshot looks like it was taken from Windows 95!

these are just -90° shifted (on the HUE scale) from the original blue ones... ;) or do you need a different kind of green?

What is it?

OldNewExplorer is the Windows 10 (and Windows 8.1, and 8) shell extension / tweaker which can undo "improvements" to file browsing made in newer Windows version. Everything is optional for your liking.

Download

http://tihiy.net/files/OldNewExplorer.rar

TEST VERSION READ BELOW

100% FREE

 

Stupid FAQ

- This is a TEST version, no installer. Potentially dangerous too!

- This is for Windows 8.1. Also should work for Windows 8 as well, though 8.1 options do not apply there;

- No changes are enabled by default. If something does not apply, try logging off / restarting explorer.exe;

- Install is for all users, settings are per-user.

 

For long thoughful posts use email.

Could it be posted with version listing and history so those looking can find it correctly?

it could... probably - but since there's always been only one version available for download (always the latest one) and it's FREE then you can't (at least you shouldn't) really complain..

Unfortunately, the options to customize it are getting removed so one has to use various hacking tricks and third-party utilities. This is my desktop (Win 8.1):

What Explorer replacement are you using? That looks pretty nice.  ONE doesn't replace the Aero/Metro stuff, as far as I know.

huh, are you now the teacher here? One shouldn't think they are a MOD when they aren't. If all one wants is to troll then go somewhere else. Also it was directed at the developers.

I'm not trolling... sure it would be awesome if there was info about version and even changelog but since there's only one link to choose from then I don't really mind... that's all ;)
