Using Windows 7 I want to hide the search box in Explorer but not in the Start Menu.
Is this possible?
You can resize it but thats all that you can do
Go to the space between the the address bar and the search bar to resize
Or you can disable both explorer and start menu by following this (Though i understand that this isn't what you really want)
You can install the freeware Classic Shell. There are two parts, Explorer settings and Start menu settings. I believe you can install only one of them (I use both).
There is checkbox "Hide Search box" in Explorer settings, which hides Search box only in Explorer window.
