Is there currently a way to dump the Windows 7 Back and Forward and Up buttons (Arrows)? Since the rest of the Luna theme looks so good, that is the remaining thing I'd like to get going. XP Back... buttons?

Plus it looks like even though I've installed the Luna Theme and Classic Shell, that Aero stuff is still lurking around. Look at this screenshot of me copying a folder from one drive to another:

Can't believe we can skin Windows 7 to almost look like XP but we still can't figure out a way to give the XP forward and back buttons.

I tried getting the XP forward and backward buttons in place but it was a no go. I can try it again but it didn't seem like a straightforward process.

The bitmaps are in C:\Windows\System32\ExplorerFrame.dll , that's been known for a long time now.

...and then Microsoft moved them into the Visual Style as of Windows 8, lel

I succeeded in replacing the original explorerframe.dll files in both the System folders. But the blue Windows 7 up button remains.

By looking at images it looks like XP did not have an up button. Okay.

Would be a lot easier if a guy could in one fell swoop replace the entire Windows 7 navigation bar and put in the Windows XP navigation bar.

That's a Classic Shell feature, you can change it in Classic Explorer settings

Wait what? I thought XP was the last version to have one before they brought it back in 8...

So...basically the Classic Explorer toolbar? :lol:

Classic Explorer Navigation Bar is not the XP bar.

I have yet to be able to make that part of the interface look like it did in XP. I was only able to get the forward and back buttons to green. This Customizer God doesn't do much. You still have to supply the icons yourself.

Another program I downloaded that had an explorer file in did nothing.

It appears that this part of the skinning process is not developed and can't be achieved.
