Explorer Toolbar buttons & Directory Try Computer node

Hi, I've some Questions about the Customization of the Explorer of my New installed Windows:

It is a Windows 7x64 Professional

First I tried to put back some classical Buttons to the Explorer Toolbar.
Using this:
How to rearrange the items in toolbar of windows explor

But I don't find any Entry under the:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes

....
What can I do than?

Second thing is that I miss in the left side Directory Tree the node for the Computer:
Here a image where the node is missing:

Here is the node:

Is there a way to get it there

Hello Max,

You could uncheck the Show all folders option when you right click on the Navigation Pane to have Computer back.

You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help you add or rearrange the toolbar or command bar buttons to how you like in Windows Explorer.

There's also a handy little free program called Classic Shell that you might take a look at to help add toolbar buttons as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Max,

Are you logged in an administrator account?

For the programs, right click on it's shortcut and click on "Run as administrator" to see if it will be able to work afterwards.

Yes it is an administrator Account.
But I realized that an "Up" button is added to the Backward/Forward buttons,
this is a nice feature.

It seems it is a problem realy specific to the toolbar

When you right click on the Computer shortcut, do you have the "Pin to taskbar" option?
