    How Do I Remove Explorer's "Quick Access Toolbar" Arrow?


    Hello, this question is a question concerning the customization of File Explorer by either disabling the feature within the Operating System, or by a 3rd party application.

    So when you open File Explorer, you have the window open to show your drives. At the top left section of the window, there's the folder's icon, some other icons, and the black arrow that points down (the thing that I want to make invisible). In the first picture I posted, you can see that I don't have the folder's icon showing, then the little black arrow, then the rest of the Title Bar. (Refer to the first image). I was able to figure out how to make the folder's icon invisible, which is half of what I want.

    Now I want to make the black arrow disappear as well. I took a screen shot, and edited in Paint, what I want the Title Bar to look like. I even moved the title of that window to the left side, replacing the black arrow. (Refer to the second image).
    (I heard that OldNewExplorer has a feature that disables the Quick Access Toolbar thing at the top, yet it doesn't look like what I want.)

    Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    :)

    Cool thanks for that suggestion.

    I got the program, and played around in it, and narrowed it down to the attached picture. I put a red box around what I want to remove, yet I cannot figure out how to get rid of it. I like things nice and simple to the eye.
