OldNewExplorer is the Windows 10 (and Windows 8.1, and 8) shell extension / tweaker which can undo “improvements” to file browsing made in newer Windows version. Everything is optional for your liking.

  • Restore devices / drives grouping: Everything is ‘Devices and drives’. That’s stupid! O-N-E can restore grouping which made sense in Win7/8.
  • Restore libraries / remove folders: Remove all those folders which were unoptionally added into Windows 8.1 This PC folder and put the libraries back to their place, without registry hacking / breaking apps.
  • Restore command bar / remove Ribbon: Because some people consider it an abomination.
  • Restore details pane at bottom: Same reason; reclaim useful horizontal space.
  • Improve styling: Get rid of some Win7 stuff here and there; improve styling with some built-in visual styles. For themers / skinners, O-N-E can help to override a lot of hardcoded styling in Windows 8, maybe even Start screen!
