I would like File Explorer to display the title bar and folder contents in a minimalist view. I've figured out how to hide the menu bar and the status bar but there are still two 'rows' of navigation/organization bars that I haven't been able to figure out how to eliminate.

I don't need the arrow/breadcrumb/search row. I don't need the organize pull down/view options pull down/get help row.

Can anyone give guidance to make the necessary registry changes to do this?

Back in Windows XP I used the registry modifications packaged in http://toastytech.com/files/throboff.html to make these changes. Are there any such tools and/or scripts for Windows 8/10?

    You are asking an off-topic question (software shopping). Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic. See On Topic.

  • @michael frank - I am looking for guidance to make registry changes in Windows 8/10 - as I am not a Windows registry 'guru'. I am not 'software shopping' as you claim in your comment above. I'll modify my original post to eliminate any confusion... – TL7 Jul 12 '16 at 23:47
  • You specifically asked for "tools and/or scripts for Windows 8/10". That is a software request. – Michael Frank Jul 12 '16 at 23:54
  • @michaelfrank - Wrong! 'Tools and/or scripts' simply automate manual procedures. If you happen to happen to have a solution to my request in code snippet form, that would be helpful, especially from a professed Linux guy. Don't drag this discussion down with petty semantics - your response seems to indicate a lack of understanding of Windows registry modifications. Sorry to be blunt. – TL7 Jul 13 '16 at 0:00
