    Default Removing windows exploer sort bar?

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to remove or disable the functionality of the explorer search bar? Personally I don't like auto sorting and have disabled it by other means but sometimes I accidentally click the name button and sadly there's no undo button that I can find. I'd really like to find a way to remove it if possible.

    No easy way - you would have to hack some system files for that.

    Any idea on how to go about that? or maybe just disabling it's functionality.

    Seems like it would just be easier to swap it out for a third party program.

    There's probably a way to disable it in registry, but the side-effects might be messy.
