Command Bar Tweaker Removes Windows Explorer's Command Bar

Windows Explorer's command bar can contain some useful buttons, but you can get the same features from keyboard shortcuts. This small utility hides the command bar completely.

Windows Explorer may be getting more complicated in Windows 8, but if you prefer a minimalist look, you can actually slim down Windows 7's Explorer with a simple tool. The Command Bar Tweaker lets you either remove the command bar entirely or auto-hide it, so you can still access it if you mouse over it. Make sure if you use the auto-hide feature that you're using the default Windows Aero theme, not Windows Basic or a third-party theme.

Windows 7 Command Bar Tweaker is a free download for Windows 7 only.

    I like the idea of the auto hide option, especially for my family's netbooks.

    Awesome, now all I need is something to remove the glass borders to the window.

      Start > type "services" (the one under Control Panel) > locate "Themes" > Disable.
