Tihiy is there any news on the glass area bug in some open windows. It seems to not work at times and requires me to re-enable glass on the nav area.

Is it with KB3000850? Any clear reproduction steps?

The bug has been around since the beginning at least from what I remember. Certain Windows don't have the glass on the navigation bar even with the option selected.

This might be an interface bug with O-N-E itself?  Seems that you can actually check all the sub-options below "Use command bar instead of Ribbon" without having that parent option checked:

In that case most of the sub-options will actually take effect (!?)  But a "Ribboned" window will not show the "glass on navigation bar", even with "Minimize the Ribbon" enabled (most likely because the Ribbon object is preventing that from happening).  Note in this screenshot that the other sub-options (Hide caption text, Hide caption icon, etc.) are still in effect:

 

Attached File  min. Ribbon with no-Ribbon effects.png   39.42KB   3 downloads

 

Personally I prefer the flexibility of the other "sub-options" actually working independently of the Ribbon being enabled or disabled.  I would like to see all of those options un-indented in the config GUI to indicate this fact.  But (based on what I understand about how the Ribbon affects Glass) I believe that the "Enable glass on navigation bar" needs to remain a sub-option of "Use command bar instead of Ribbon" and needs to be unchecked and grayed out when the parent option is not enabled.  (Edited to correct that last sentence!  :blushing: )

 

More on the effects of the Ribbon on Glass and blur here: http://www.msfn.org/...-131/?p=1090261

I just noticed that the Install/Uninstall buttons are actually invoking C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe to register/deregister both OldNewExplorer32.dll and OldNewExplorer64.dll.  If OldNewExplorer64.dll is truly 64-bit then shouldn't it be handled by C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32.exe?

I believe this because not all explorer windows are opened in a 64 bit process so both 32bit and 64 bit must be enabled.

Can this feature be included?

 

This is Address Bar remover. When it is running, explorer windows have no Address bar (Navbar, Rebar).

 

The executable is attached, and here is the AHK source code:

#NoEnv
#NoTrayIcon
 
SetControlDelay, -1
Gui +LastFound
hWnd := WinExist()
 
DllCall( "RegisterShellHookWindow", UInt,hWnd )
MsgNum := DllCall( "RegisterWindowMessage", Str,"SHELLHOOK" )
OnMessage( MsgNum, "ShellMessage" )
Return

ShellMessage(wParam, lParam) {

   If (wParam = 1) ;  HSHELL_WINDOWCREATED := 1
   {

WinGetClass, WinClass, ahk_id %lParam%
if (WinClass = "CabinetWClass") {

WinGetClass, WinClass, ahk_id %lParam%
ControlGetPos, ,y1,,ha,ReBarWindow321, ahk_id %lParam%

Control, Hide,, WorkerW1, ahk_id %lParam%
Control, Hide,, ReBarWindow321, ahk_id %lParam%


SendMessage, 0x0082,,,ReBarWindow321, ahk_id %lParam%


ControlGetPos,,y2,,h1,ShellTabWindowClass1, ahk_id %lParam%
ControlMove, ShellTabWindowClass1,, y1,,(y2-y1)+h1, ahk_id %lParam%
ControlMove, ReBarWindow321,,,,0, ahk_id %lParam%
WinSet, Redraw,, ahk_id %lParam%
}

}
  
}

But I think it would be better to add such feature as a checkbox.

I believe this because not all explorer windows are opened in a 64 bit process so both 32bit and 64 bit must be enabled.

 

Yes I do understand that principle, just don't understand why the 32-bit regsvr32.exe is being used to register the apparent 64-bit DLL.  I believe the proper way to register the different bit-ness parts would be like this:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe <PathTo>OldNewExplorer32.dll
C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32.exe <PathTo>OldNewExplorer64.dll

???

 

(Edited to remove spurious switch for regsvr32.exe)

Old-New-Explorer was no longer compatible since the 2nd preview build (Which I remember it being 9860), and then the last Tech Preview build for Windows Insiders (which is 9879).

 

Windows Insider participants won't get a new Tech Preview Build release until 2015 when Windows 10 hits Consumer Preview. Build 9901 is a very early build of the Consumer Preview.
