    Change windows explorer address bar height and dropdown spacing


    Hi there,

    Not too sure what this is called, but how do I reduce the height (marked as the red line in the screenshot) without affecting the breadcrumb font size? Also how do I increase the spacing in the dropdown, as they look real cramped up to me..

  2. Windows Explorer Address Bar Height in Windows 10

    Hello,

    How do you reduce the height of the Windows Explorer Address bar. For example, my address bar appears as:


    Change windows explorer address bar height and dropdown spacing 4cc0c38f-075f-4a85-ba71-f2b862be2e76?upload=true.png


    As you can see, there is a large amount of padding between the text ("My Computer" in this case) and top/bottom borders.

    I've tried adjusting resolution and the scaling settings. I'm running Windows 10, all current updates are applied.

    Have verified on two other laptops I have and the padding issue does not exist on either one.

    Issue only appears in the Address bar, height is good everywhere else.

    Thanks for any help!

  3. Using the file explorer address bar

    I typed an entry incorrectly into the File Explorer address bar and it gave me a dropdown menu underneath giving me the option to search for it so I selected to search for it (in the address bar not the Search box on the far right).
    I then got a Windows Security window which said Connect to Bing.com (with connecting to Bing.com underneath it). The window was asking for a Username and Password. What username and password was it requesting?... because I clicked on Cancel and was taken to Bing search. Is this normal behaviour? Its something I've never come across before.
    What is the Search option that comes up in the address bar dropdown menu capable of searching for..because it took me straight to Bing?

    I don't remember seeing this before either. Perhaps now what happens when using a local account?
