    In Windows 7 the back/forward buttons were in Explorer.exe. Maybe they are still there.

    Navigation (Back/Forward) are stored in aero.msstyles located C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero\aero.msstyles. Images 1144 - 1152. Nine images three per DPI used. Hope that helps

    Zip up the .msstyles and post it here and I will look at it and see if I can find them.

    What version of 8 do you have? They are not in your .msstyles. Did you check the ExplorerFrame.dll?
