OldNewExplorer is a shell extension and tweaker that can undo "improvements" to file browsing added in Windows 10, 8.1, and 8.
It has many options allowing you to completely restore Windows Explorer to the old style or only change what you don't like.
You can restore the devices and drive grouping, making more sense to some in Windows 7 and 8.
You can also restore libraries and remove folders that were added to Windows 8.1. This puts the libraries back to where they were, without registry hacking or breaking apps.
If you don't like the restore command bar or Ribbon, you can get rid of them and restore the details pane at the bottom.
It also improves the style and can get rid of some Windows 7 specific things, and enhance styling with some built-in visual styles.
To install extract files into a directory where you can find them. Run OldNewExplorerCfg.exe and click Install. To uninstall, run OldNewExplorerCfg.exe and click Uninstall. The file was initially distributed as a RAR file. We have made it available as a ZIP.
