remove the UP button from windows explorer

Recommended Posts

dnix

This cannot be as hard as its seeming. For reasons not worth going into, I dont want to send keys or use screen scriptng if I can avoid it, but I need a script to go into windows xp explorer / view / toolbars / customize and remove the stupid UP button. I cant find this particular customisation documented anywhere...what the heck?

Anyone help? Please?

Yes I know this is dumb, but its a weird lock down thing I need to do on a machine for work.

here is a start that can help you :

you can change explorer buttons on registry :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

add or modify dword valuename {710EB7A1-45ED-11D0-924A-0020AFC7AC4D} with this value :

07000000EE0300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC99D612001000040000000EF0300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC9

9D612101000000000000FFFFFFFF000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000F10300007E69791EC59CD111

A83F00C04FC99D612301000044000000F20300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC99D613301000005000000FFFFFFFF0000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000031700000A1B70E71ED45D011924A0020AFC7AC4D3170000004000000

In my case, this value doesn't exit by default and I diidn't customized the toolbar

So when I removed the button it created this value...

That's Internet Explorer toolbar.. not Windows Explorer. At least there was effort behind the attempt ;).

You've said to create a DWORD called "{710EB7A1-45ED-11D0-924A-0020AFC7AC4D}" in the ../../../Internet Explorer/Toolbar folder and add that value to it, corrent? A DWORD type value cannot hold more than 4 values, so that's impossible. Please do explain how I would even consider testing this...?

oops, sorry, it's binary data :

$s_ValueKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar"
$s_ValueName = "{710EB7A1-45ED-11D0-924A-0020AFC7AC4D}"
$s_Value = "07000000EE0300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC99D612001000040000000E" & _
"F0300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC99D612101000000000000FFFFFFFF0000000000000" & _
"00000000000000000000000000000000000F10300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC99D612" & _
"301000044000000F20300007E69791EC59CD111A83F00C04FC99D613301000005000000FFFFFF" & _
"FF00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000031700000A1B70E71ED45D011924" & _
"A0020AFC7AC4D3170000004000000"
RegWrite($s_ValueKey,$s_ValueName,"REG_BINARY",$s_Value)
