Standard Windows Dialog Changes

By demosthanese ·
Anyone know how I can change the standard windows open/save dialog hot buttons? When I open/save a document I would like to have the buttons on the left access the folders of my choosing rather than the standard my computer, desktop, network etc.

Im sure its probably a reg edit, but thats fine with me.

How about adding a location to MyPlaces?

If that's not what you're looking for, let us know.

That is exactly what i was looking for. I never knew that had a name or i would have just googled it lol. I searched for days based on other keywords. Thanks!!

Everything in Windows has a name.....

The hard part is figuring out what they've called it or renamed it to in the version you're using. They change names of things between versions just to keep us on our toes.

Well i just did that changes and it worked fine in the Office dialog (well a bit different with 07, but worked) but its doesnt appear to be working with other apps (specifically Corel Draw X4). Any ideas there? Could they be used their own file handling dialogs?
