- QTTabBar for the tabs and the sidebar
I really recommend this program, is a must if you heavily use the windows explorer, i been using it two years and i haven't had any problem.
- Matte icon pack (The icon pack is included in the download)
To Make QTTabBar look like in the picture i included the configuration file (XML) and the tab skins in the download
- Load the XML file in General > "Import Now"
- Appearance> Tab Skins > "Close Button on Tab": select "closeBtnCircle.png"
- Appearance> Tab Skins > "Image File Path" : select "Tabs.png"
Loading the configuration file is not necessary but i made the colors in "Appearance" to match the tab image colors and the windows dark theme, this is easy and you can do it yourself if you need to.
To active the black vertical sidebar make right click near the tabs Toolbars > Command Bar (Vertical). You can hide the Windows Navigation Panel going to View > Navigation Pane > Deselect "Navigation Pane".
So I have installed this version of the app and it does work....but some things are not accessible as you have written.
When I go to look for the xml file....its not there...I go to this random dir in my C drive. What is the name of the xml file I am looking for and where does it go during installation? Nothing is there when I go to look for it.
Same for the other files closeBtnCircle.png & Tabs.png.
Nothing is there when I go to look for it. I've tried searching my entire computer for those file names and nothing pops up.
Can you help please?
only the left of my file explorer is black, the right side and the top and bottom menue are still white. I followed all the steps in the instruction. am i Missing something?
I also tried the "high contrast black" windows design, but that ended with an ugly purple menu and a white grid on the taskbar. For both i could not find the witches to turn them black as well.
Looks great! Thanks for sharing the resources, too!
This is such an off-the-wall question, but how did you manage to hide the file names in explorer? I've missed that option since Windows 7 and would love to have it back.
