View Full Version : adding 'favorites' to file open window

OS win2k

You know when you open a file from within an application, the "open file" window opens, and down the lhs you are presented with the icons for history, desktop, my documents, my computer, network neighborhood.

Well how do you swap one of those icons (say history) for your favorites folder? Anyone?

Thanks in advance :)

I have been able to do this on XP Pro so this may or may not work on other OS's.

Click on Control Panel and go to classic view. Click on Folder options. Go to file types, choose the file you you want to change and click on advanced. There you can change the icon to something different.

Hope this helps.
