ADDING A KIND OF SEPARATOR TO THE NAVIGATION PANE, (LEFT PART OF THE WINDOW), ON WINDOWS VISTA.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


PLEASE follow the instruction as is:

Go to c (=main hard disk) make a new folder and rename it to 'separator' , inside make again a new folder

and rename it to

ــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ
(copy all of this line carefully as the name of the folder)
(you can make it smaller if you preffer but please not bigger)

then make right clik to this new folder for changing the folder ico and appearing folder's properties ,

Properties>Customize>Choose Picture>Apply>OK.choose an no image picture ,(as on SCREENSHOT picture)

(from a place that there no any visible image ico) from

%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll.

then drag with your mouse the modified folder (with separator looking) to the navigation pane (left part) of the window.

(the color of the '' separator '' is the same with the color of font letters on navigation pane.)

[1.Also if you dont need it you can easily delete it]
[2.For a smaller and a thiner line you can use _________________________________
this line or something similar a litle bigger or smaller]

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

(i writte this as a quiq solution until a better method, could help us giving also transparency and different color to the 'separator', or using a real image, better looking)

I Found this as an easy solution for my mac style WIN ZEUS osX theme for windows Vista [link]

which its new (last?) version (UPDATED 2) perchaps comes on December 2007/January 2008.

if right alt 0160 doesn't work use this "   " just copy and paste it

Very nice, and to make it even better you can give those folders empty name (Alt 160) like I did, it ads empty spaces instead of separators.
ballyhairs's avatar
and for more empty separators just keep on adding Alt 160

_______________ find a similar symbol to this to your keyboard , copy then this _____________ as the name of a new folder (make it little shorter or little longer if you wish, then change the icon of it, right clik to this new folder for changing the folder ico and appearing folder's properties , Properties>Customize>ChoosePicture>Apply>OK.choose an no image picture ,(as on SCREENSHOT picture) (from a place that there no any visible image ico) from
%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll.

THEN save the file you just made to a safe place.then drag this file to the left side of your window (to navigation pane) THATS IT. OK?
