The skin would need to be opened in SkinStudio and the have the bottom of the Toolbar background image or the  top area of the Command Bar background image edited to remove that line 1nsomn1ac.  To me it looks like the bottom of the Toolbar background image, but there is not of knowing for sure without using SkinStudio to check.

I believe the white line you are reffering to is caused by the Ribbon bar. You can turn it off for a much cleaner look if you don't really use it since it just has common actions inside of it that you can do elsewhere.

It can be turned off by going into the settings of WindowBlinds and ticking this entry:

I don't have it ticked for me since I'm using a different tool to hide it along with the "Up" Arrow next to the back/foward buttons.

both Toolbar background & Command Bar background image are clean, there is no such line.
i think it came from windows system.

yes, everyone is helpful, thanks to you too  
anyway, i'm making a minimalist looking wb, but there's another problem.
i've managed to get rid of the search box,
but the search icon won't go away, any thought? i can't find where to replace the icon file.

That image is forced by Windows 10, but you can change it here:

(If you make it a transparent image, the icon will disappear completely)

 

 

However, it will not change the Search Icon in the explorer search box, which is also forced, but not changeable at all.

The white line is in the section: Edit Explorer/IE shell parts>Edit additional parts>Additional explorer sections>left hand line. You might as well skin the right hand line while you're at it as it will show up if you enable the preview pane in explorer.

The black text in the searchbox is unfortunately hard coded. One of the drawbacks of doing dark skins.

you're partly right, i used the color for button face background in primary substyle (light skin),
 but for dark substyle i have changed it, it doesn't seem to have any effect.

for #1 i know it's possible to change the white color, i have seen some skin using other color for that part, i just don't know how to change it.

I'm not partly right.

I'm either right or I'm wrong.
