I'd never run a reg file without a much better explanation of whats going on.

However, welcome :)

you can open the reg file in notepad/wordpad and see what it is putting where... after looking at it personally, it tosses a few hex values in an internet explorer/toolbar spot... i don't think this is a big risk for computer security...

I know it's no security risk, and I am fully aware of how to interrogate a REG file. I just choose to not run such items without an explanation.

You can save your reg file and named "showmenubar" before you input my reg file to your reg.If you want show menubar you can input "showmenubar" into your reg and if you want hide menubar then run my reg file.

Okay, this is ridiculous. Why do you want to hide your address bar, and stop yourself being able to type in any URLs?! Anyway, to hide address bar, right click on the toolbar. and uncheck Address Bar

for the address bar you can just go into view to turn that off.

i want to remove the address bar in explorer only, not in IE. im not using IE anyway.

i know how to turn off address bar manually, right clicking on the toolbar and then uncheck the "Address". but after u used this reg tweaks, if u uncheck the address bar, the menu bar (file view tools etc) will appear again.

Download Slate 3.0 or Longhorn Aero 5.0 to set your toolbar to default or customize more toolbar.

i haven't used it or taken a look at it, but i'm guessing that the "showmenubar" reg file will bring it back. :)

Yes but you see now I am working on a registry hack to remove the start menu, menu bars, address bars... i even made one to remove icons and one to stop a GUI from loading!

and finally... one to remove all your files... its not a reg hack its called FORMAT.COM :p

God you guys are ****ing rude. I never understood why so many Neowins have such a problem with letting people customize their PC how they want to. If someone wants to hide the menu bar, good for them. Personally the only thing I use in the menubar is folder options, and that is even accessible through the control panel. It doesn't remove any functionality for me, thank you very much. With the address bar, I hardly ever use it in explorer, and I don't use IE, so hiding it is hardly an issue for me either.

Next time you be an ass and try to tell someone how to customize THEIR system, think first.

Nice. Now i don't have to reshack my browselc.dll anymore. I don't use this bar anyway. Everything is easiyl in reach through right click.

This comes out of the blue but is there a way to add a hotkey for making a new folder?
