Update 1/31/16 Version 5.1.5

    Added a button to open the options menu in the top right and made it so you can change the font outline color through the options menu.

Update 2/7/16 Version 6.1.4
    Changed s'more of the color settings. Highlight color now controls the path and search backgrounds as well as the hover effect color, while the path and search now use the regular font color. The options menu now uses the same color scheme as the explorer, without the transparency effects. Wish I could add rounded corners to pretty things up a little.

Update 2/8/16 Version 6.1.5
    Bugfixes and optimizations.

Update 2/8/16 Version 6.1.6
    Menu Color can now be changed independent of background color.

    Removed almost all [!Refresh]s in the skin.

Update 3/26/16 Version 2.3
    Explorer is now super duper fast yet still not cpu intensive.

Update 3/30/16 Version 3.0
    Set DefaultUpdateDivider=-1 and then rewrote the skin so it never updates on updates.

Update 4/6/16 Version 3.2
    God do I love NirCmd. Code optimization again. Also if you hit the delete key while hovering over a file or folder, it will prompt you if you're like to delete it and if you say yes it'll delete it and send it to the recyclebin, which sounds silly when you say it like that, because duh, but let me tell you it was not easy to accomplish so elegantly. Seriously, NirCmd is the best.

Update 4/6/16 Version 3.2.1
