Hello,

Sorry to hear you are having issues.

But it's not really clear to me your problem.

What program and version is your issue with .

and what version of Windows are you using ?

Be best if you could show us a screenshot or Video grab of your issue .

title bar

 

 

So, the problem is can i remove the blue help button? 

Also, the video tab at top when media is present in a window

Lastly, for the life of me, i cant find where to recolour the name/size tabs......

 

any help would be great

 

thx

Hello,

Those first two, I believe, we cannot change. The "header bars" can be change via skinstudio header bars section as below.

Thank you,

ps, i used to be able to change the font of everything in windowblinds itself (modify style/ do you want to over-ride the font) and choose a font, and off we go. Now this doesnt change, well 5% of the time it might, but certainly not like it used to. It does change title bar fonts, status bar fonts, but not explorer fonts anymore?

So now im looking in skin studio to change explorer font, but again, cant find my way around!  thx

Hello,

As far as I know, I don't think you can change Windows Explorer font in Windows 10. But, someone might come along and said I am wrong.

And on those sharing icon overlay, I am not sure but I don't think Windowblinds can control those.

Thank you,

change explorer font

File Explorer window font on Win10 is defined by:

Change skin fonts / "Show me the skin defined system fonts" / "System Icon Font"

That'll also change the desktop icon font, probably something else somewhere too.  A lot of times I have to switch to a different skin and then back to the one I've changed the font on before the change will show in Explorer.

so, last question, i know you did say i cant do anything with the sharing icon, but can i do ANYTHING with it!!

 

I cant even seem to change it (which i totally thought i could use a blank icon), and i have googled, but surely some of you geniuses on here have a suggestion right?

 

Thx guys

DaveRI gave you the location which you were able to make work for you. I have changed a few over the years and have the full description written down so my old brain can use if it forgets. You may want to copy and paste into notepad and save for future.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Change Skin Fonts. Edit Fonts/Show me the skin defined system fonts.

Add New Font. Choose the font you want to use and size. Click apply.

Now go to "System icon font" Change from OS Default to your new font. Click apply. What I know this changes. Left side of Explorer Window. Top menu text.
(which is the dropdown menu located in the top search area.) --- Changes the Left side of the Explorer window. --- Open the "Computer Window " --- Also
changes the Skype menu.

Now use the new font in the "System Menu Font". Changes the right side of the Explorer Window.

Also change system small caption font.


NOTE: To see any changes after you use a font change you must apply another WindowBlind then Apply the WB you are working on. This is for the "System
icon font" change. - To see the change in the System Menu Font area you have to apply another WB, Apply the WB you are working on and also close and open Windows Explorer, Explorer

To add to the list of what actually changes do one at a time and check and make note. I know Fences text and Photoshop drop down menus also change.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: This works on win7/8/10. Here is a screenshot from my win10 computer.

Just as a heads up....its damn near impossible to do anything with a shared drive icon, so my work around was to un-share the drive, but then share the folders i needed within....

I believe you're looking at the image defined in:

"Edit Explorer / IE shell parts" /Edit Explorer parts/ListView/Selection image [Image]tab.

That's also the image you see in File Explorer when you mouseover a filename.

Edit Titlebars and WindowFrames / Edit per pixel buttons / Standard Buttons / System Icon [Extra Settings]tab

Set both "System Icon Alpha" settings to "0"

 

Also would probably want to do the UIS2 frames.

Edit Titlebars and WindowFrames / Edit UIS2 Frames / Titlebar buttons

Scroll down to "System Icon" button, click on it to highlight it, click on the "Delete" button over to the right.  You're going to delete whatever button you have selected, so be sure you have the "System Icon" button selected.
