Windows 7: Open/Search Menu Tree menu

Open/Search Menu Tree menu



Sometimes the open/save menu will show up like this, especially in older programs. I am wondering if there is a way of changing the recent places to My documents to save a few clicks. Thanks

Hello Kookster,

This can help show you how to modify the common file dialog box to have the shortcuts you wanted instead.

Hope this helps,

One last question based on this. The Icon I now have for my documents I dont like in there, so how would I go about changing it?

I just directed it to the shortcut in my libraries so it would show the proper icon
