Speaking of File Explorer, I'm sure you guys are not too strange here: D, first appeared in Windows 95 and until now, it has become an indispensable component of the Windows operating system. .

As the name implies, File Explorer (Windows + E) gives you the ability to manage files, folders on your hard drive in a simple, easy and extremely effective way.

And like other Microsoft tools, it is also equipped with a status bar (Status Bar) at the bottom to display some information, such as File number, File size, File view. ...

This is a very useful feature, but if you do not like it, you can also hide the status bar in File Explorer in a very simple way!

For those who do not know what the status bar in File Explorer is, this is the area highlighted in the image below.

This status bar has 2 main effects as I mentioned above:

  1. Displays the number of files in the directory you are accessing, the number of files currently selected and its size if you choose to enter an application.
  2. The second is to switch between the File view and the large icon mode.

Method # 2: Use the Registry Editor to hide the Status bar

Before following this article, you need to back up the entire Registry of the system so that when encountering errors that can be restored.

This method is also very simple, but because of editing to the Windows 10 Registry, the risk of conflicts and operating system errors is higher, so I do not recommend using it.

To save time, I have made 2 corresponding .REG files hidden and show the status bar for you already. Just download and click to run, no manual editing required!

// In general, manual editing will make it easier to make mistakes because you mistakenly manipulate it, but actually running this .REG file will not be an error 😀


+ Step 1: First, download the 2 .REG files that I have prepared with one of the 2 links below, download, then extract it to a certain place for little use.

Download Link: Mediafile link / Link Dropbox

+ Step 2: After decompressing, you will have 2 .REG files as shown in the picture above:

  1. Now to hide the status bar, run the file an-thanh-trang-thai.reg
  2. To bring up the File Explorer status bar, run the file hien-thanh-trang-thai.reg

There will be a familiar warning every time you run a .REG file on Windows, press Yes to continue.
