I am not sure if this is a standard win8 problem or something to do with classic shell, but it's impossible to search for "up button" becaue they are too common words :)

My windows 8 explorer navigation bar looks like this. Is it possible to have all three (back/forward/up) buttons look the same? Preferably the blue round ones.

Classic Explorer only creates the Up button for Windows 7. For Windows 8 and up it does nothing because the OS has a built-in button. You may be able to change the appearance by finding the bitmap that is used and replacing it. I don't know where it is. Maybe a resource inside Explorer.exe.

The up button is an icon file in shell32.dll if you'd like to try changing it.
