        OpenFileDialog1.CheckFileExists = True
        OpenFileDialog1.CheckPathExists = True
        OpenFileDialog1.DefaultExt = "pdf"
        OpenFileDialog1.Filter = "pdf File|*.pdf"
        OpenFileDialog1.InitialDirectory = "C:\"
        OpenFileDialog1.Multiselect = False
        OpenFileDialog1.FileName = filePDF.Text.ToString
        filePDF.Text = OpenFileDialog1.FileName.ToString

That's a system button ... you cannot change that.
If you REALLY need that you have to create you own openfiledialog .
