I have shortcuts setup in our project folders to the various FTP sites used by our clients, with Target similar to the following:
C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /n, /e, ftp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/FROM%20CPI
That way whoever's working on the project can access the FTP site easily without having to dig around for passwords. In Windows XP, the shortcut opens a new window showing the specified FTP directory (no password entry needed), and the directory structure showing in the "Folders" Explorer Bar (on the left) - for the above example it would be: Desktop > Internet Explorer > ftp.cliffordprojects.com > FROM CPI.
However, when I open the shortcut in Windows 7, I don't see the folders on the left
(though I can still navigate on the right by opening folders, or going "up" - but it makes me feel blind). I've checked both "Show all folders" and "Automatically expand to current folder" in Folder Options. I've tried creating an Internet Explorer shortcut on the desktop (since there wasn't one). I've alsotried adding it to the Favorites (it doesn't show folders below the one added). Any suggestions?
I do NOT want to have to map it to a drive letter just to see the subfolders.
