Details @ Aero Xperience BlogWith Vista, Microsoft redesigned Windows Explorer a lot. One of the biggest changes was the removal of the customizable toolbar. Up to Windows XP, adding or removing the buttons that were displayed in Explorer was a simple chore.
With Vista, this customization ability is gone; the toolbar is replaced by a so-called green shaded “commandbar,” and none of it can be customized unless you are willing to take a dive into the registry.
In this post, I will show you a way to add custom buttons — like in the above image — to the commandbar by adding items to the registry. Unfortunately, not all buttons (e.g. New Folder) are possible via this way.
This forum is for tips, information and general news regarding Windows Vista.
