Windows 7: Rearranging Task Pane in Win 7 Explorer

Rearranging Task Pane in Win 7 Explorer

Hi everyone

Just a quick question about Win 7 Explorer. When you first open explorer its default is opened to the libraries in the "file pane" (right side) and then you have a choice of four main areas in the "task pane" (left side)


In Vista I could simply select "Folder View": (bottom of the task pane) and drag it up to the top to cover and hide the other options of Favorite, Documents, etc... (not sure if I got the naming right on those :-))


Is there some way to put COMPUTER on top in Win 7? or to hide the others.

I saw in another post that you can change the default opening view in Win 7 from Libraries in the "File Pane" (right side) to Computer (which shows the Drive Icons on the right side...but id still like to have the COMPUTER section in the "Task Pane" (left side) at the top

Is it possible?
