    Resolved [RESOLVED] Shortcut to My Docs

    What ho one and all,

    I don't like comparing XP with W7 but...........

    On my ex-XP install, I had all my documents in partition D. called My Docs. On the desktop and task bar, I had a shortcut that immediately opened D with all the folders visible.

    On W7, any shortcut I make to D, immediately opens Explorer as a tree with D highlighted, which I have to open with + to open the folder list (still in Explorer) and then select the folder I want.

    This is what I get from the taskbar MyDoc shortcut.

    ATTACH=CONFIG]15589[/ATTACH].

    Is there a way to get the shortcut to open as a page with all the MyDoc files displayed.

    Thanks and toodle pip

    Drag the little drive icon before D in the address bar to a space on your desktop.

    So if I'm reading that right, you want the shortcut to have the H: folders expanded in the Navigation pane when you open the shortcut?

    Try this:
    In the Explorer window, click Organize > Folder and search options
    On the General tab, check "Automatically expand to current folder"

    I think I did read it incorrectly.

    Gentlemen,

    Many thanks and the issue has been sorta resolved.

    Mainly my fault as the folder display is somewhat different from XP. With XP, clicked MyDocs and it opened as partition D: with nothing else.

    But W7 includes the directory tree for everything on the left (which I don't really want) and the right pane displays the folder contents. Stupidly, I had the contents displaying as files, and in reverse alphabetical order, so the folders are off the bottom. Now that I have changed to Medium icons in the correct alphabetical order, it is easier to see what I want.

    A Homer Simpson moment!!!

    Thanks and toodle pip
