Restore Windows Explorer toolbar in Windows 7

I want to restore the toolbar with the up arrow in Windows Explorer (in Windows 7).
Once thing I miss is the Up arrow in the toolbar, to go to the parent directory (not the previous directory). I guess alt+up arrow accomplishes this, but not as convenient.

You can also click the folder you want in the 'address bar' to jump back to it. It's still just one mouse-click. :)

That function is gone in Windows 7 and cannot be restored.  If you really would like the up arrow (parent directory) or need it, I use xPlorer2 (zabkat.com) as a Windows Explorer replacement. It has the Parent Directory as well as forward / back and a bunch of other things Windows Explorer no longer has. .... Thinkpads_User

Well, yes, it can be restored...  check out Classic Shell.

Here's what my Win7 Explorer looks like with the Vista toolbar on the right, and the up arrow to the left of the address bar.

Win7 Explorer with Classic Shell
Note that gives an Up Arrow on the right AND the left.  :-)

Yes. My comment was directed to the native version and is true from that point of view. I have see that add-on before, but I much prefer xPlorer2 and so use that. ... Thinkpads_User

I usually don't use the Vista-style toolbar, but it's very easy to toggle by right-clicking on the menu bar.
