@Mouser: The message is a bit misleading. The problem actually is that the skin format exported by VLC Skin Builder 7 is newer than the one supported by FARR. Skins edited with Skin Builder 6 and earlier work without problems with FARR. Updating FARR to the current version of VLCSkin will probably be all you'll have to do.

@Nod5: Strange that you see the scrollbars in slenderFARR. Since I stopped using WindowBlinds and am back to Windows Luna, I always see the standard Luna scroll bars and those don't show the problems you seem to experience.

FARR has been updated and should handle the new skin files now as of version 2.55.01.

After the update the scrollbars for this skin now look like they should without the need to edit the skinfile.  Thmbsup

Doh! Now the old blue scrollbars are back again even with 2.55.01!! Weird - I've changed nothing, just rebooted.

I'm attaching a modded version of SlenderFARR. The only change from the standard version is that I replaced the scrollbars by importing those from another skin ( mxskin13.skn ).

I've set XP to use non-default values for scrollbar width ( right click desktop > properties > appearance > advanced > scroll = size 11 ). Maybe that's why I and no one else got the blue scrollbars with the standard SlenderFARR.

A tip for others that also prefer a minimal GUI: run this autohotkey script once after each FARR startup (usually once after each computer reboot) to disable the statusbar text.
It also has the positive sideeffect of hiding the horizontal line between the main input box and the (now empty) statusbar area until any matches are displayed.
[copy or print]
Control, Hide,, TPanel1, ahk_class TMainForm
ControlSetText, TPanel3, %A_Space%, ahk_class TMainForm





edit: I autorun the script after each reboot and then delay it for 2 minutes ( autohotkey command: "Sleep, 120000") so that it doesn't try to disable the statusbar before FARR has autostarted.

edit2: the sleep step above didn't work if the FARR window hadn't been opened once yet. This works better. Put it in autorun and change "pause" to whatever you use as FARR hotkey.
[copy or print]
~Pause::
winwaitactive, ahk_class TMainForm
Control, Hide,, TPanel1, ahk_class TMainForm
ControlSetText, TPanel3, %A_Space%, ahk_class TMainForm

I have read this thread entirely (I think), and while this does appear to be addressed here:

Quote from: mouser
you dont have to technically remove the toolbar, just click and hold to the left of it and drag it to far right which will hide it.

I want it to look like the example in the original post, which has no sorting bar there.

ohhhhh, thanks.....

Mouser, may I suggest a feature request, to be able to hide the toolbars in small list icons, without changing the way it shows? Perhaps an autohide is in place? IDK, but I really love the list style, if it were just possible to make it a bit more minimal

statusbar (bottom) you can't remove any more -- though i will probably put back the option to remove it soon.
to remove the top *header*, uncheck the option "Hide Column Headers Completely" in Display Options tab:

I don't have headers hidden, but I don't have any columns?

 (see attachment in previous post)

That's because you have large icons selected. If you select small icon report (bottom right of mouser's screenshot), you will get a list like in my screenshot.
