  • Windows Explorer help

    Within windows explorer I am looking to add a place on my local disk so it is displayed under the desktop option. (at the moment i use a shortcut on my desktop)

    Windows key + E to bring up explorer
    view > explorer bar > folders

    |Desktop
    |My Documents
    |My Computer
    |Recycle Bin
    |My Shortcut (C:\documents and settings\my user\mylocal data)

    I know how to change the Save in box and thought this may be just as easy... but no joy so far. Any ideas ?

      Re: Windows Explorer help

      If you load windows explorer from windows XP using the windows+e you are presented with two panes withing the window.

      make sure folders view is turned on. (view > explorer bar > folders)

      On the left pane you have a series of options to click on. They inclued

      |Desktop
      |My Documents
      |My Computer
      |Recycle Bin

      I would like to be able to add my own option here. So when I click on it it will act as a shotcut to take me to a specific folder on my local drive and open it up as if it was open the My Documents folder so it would display all the sub folders underneath it. although the location would still be C:\documents and settings\users\my documents.

      I would like to have the following

      |Desktop
      |My Documents
      |My Computer
      |Recycle Bin
      | My Local Data (C:\documents and settings\users\my local data)

      hope this helps a bit more
