OldNewExplorer 1.1.9


Recommended Posts

Thank you very much Tihiy, I preserve the latest ability of OldNewExplorer version 1.0.6 to my DevianART page http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Windows-8-1-explorer-with-transparent-address-bar-433200199?ga_submit_new=10%253A1392062296


Do me a favor, please have a look to my personal 'Control panel' shortcut also to the shortcut 'My Computer', windows, shortcuts taken from my http://zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/taskbar-s-folders-for-windows-8-system-310043643 so to affect OldNewExplorer changes to those kind of windows location made, too, if possible.

Thanks in advance and congratulations.

Amazing work Tihiy, I have one more request, can you add options to remove the extra padding on the address bar and navigation buttons and remove the up arrow please, that would make it perfect :)

Version 1.0.7


- Kill Kill Kill Up Button!

- Also, extra paddings around search field and 2px extra from travel buttons are removed when on glass

Up button may be useful, but it's ugly. Maybe i'll try to make it skinnable.

What can I say mate, you are the man!!!

Actually as it it seems this is all so easy for you with your mad skills, maybe you can figure out what MS did to stuff up custom theme System metrics not being applied, currently the only way to change the system metrics is through the registry unless your using Windows Style builder, for some reason when you test a theme using that it will update the system metrics and when you hit stop testing it actually manages to apply the correct system metrics for the applied theme, maybe I should get PandaX to make a small tool that somehow reproduces this testing but just applies it to the current theme.

This is how Windows 8 should have looked :)

Is it possbile to have the "Hard Disk Drives" and "Devices with removable storage" separated by modifying a .dll or file (without using this app) ?


Hardly so. Even if it's possible shell32.dll signature will break causing havoc.
