Windows 7: Libraries/Favorites/My Computer Order?

Libraries/Favorites/My Computer Order?

Is it possible to change the order the things on the left hand pane of Windows Explorer?

I'd like to have my computer and it's drives up top, especiall on my netbook since vertical real estate is precious on it.

Hello copernicus,

Not as far as I am aware, However what you can do is drag any items from the lower groups into the favorites area to create a link, and colapse the items on the lower area

Hope this helps

I wish it were possible!!!
I mean, why not? What could stop MS from adding a drag & drop functionality to that pane?
Maybe it'll be possible in the RC branch as I'm sure others besides myself have sent feedback on that. But until then, Barman's way is all I know of ATM...
