    Hi Nir, waiting very long for a tool like this. But: I can’t remove ‘Burn’, ‘Print’, ‘Include in library’ and ‘Share with’. There is no error message. Please fix that. tia

    Plz add a folder up button (the action from back-key now), a delete button for those who liked it, if possible add sticky listview (so that windows memorizes its view mode when enabled), some button for an action that opens REAL file locations from searches, wthout having having to use the richt click menu while holding the Ctrl-key all the time.

    Side note: Windows 7 has a lot of new crappy flaws. TFor example the virtual library thing… contributes to a loss of oversight of real locations, as soon as there are many thousands of files.
    Thanks for FiletypesMan and others.

    Sent this by email before I saw the blog

    Very useful. One big request – a lot of useful buttons don’t have a simple way of doing it, like “New Text File” which is often requested. Would a “perform custom cmd.exe action” be possible, to execute a user-defined action in the location or on the items?

    Also any chance of some way to sort buttons?

    Thank you for all you do!

    Hi, I ran the utility you so kindly provided, but when trying to remove the ‘Share with’ button(s) I got an error message. It only says one or several tasks have failed.

    I ran the utility as Admin.
    User Account Control Disabled.
    Anti-virus disabled.
    Restarted Explorer afterward.
    Tried only one button at a time, just the ‘Share with’.

    Can you please try to get it fixed ?

    Thanks !

    Adding a perform custom cmd.exe action so you can add your own toolbar buttons would make this even better.
