Windows 7: Places bar in Windows 7 common dialog

Places bar in Windows 7 common dialog

Hi,

I see a tutorial here about customizing the places bar in the common file dialog, but I don't see how to get the places bar to show up instead of the navigation pane. There is nothing in the Organize -> Layout drop-down.

Thanks,

Ed

Places Bar

Actually, the places bar or rather the lack of it is an OS issue, not necessarily hardwired into the program.

When a program can be run in XP compatibility mode, like Textpad, as below, the places bar shows up, but not otherwise.

Also, when I run Office 2010 on my XP box, I get the places bar, but not on my Win 7 laptop. So there must be a way to get it to happen. We just haven't found it yet.

Actually, I think the problem is after all, in Office 2010, because I am using Office 2010 64 bit and it can't run in XP compatibility mode.
