Windows 7: New network location

17 Apr 2010   #1

7 ultimate
New network location

Have some folders on a small hosted website.
In XP, was able to shortcut the site and folders and have them appear in the my computer pane.
I cannot do that at all in 7 Ultimate, although my FileZilla works fine.
What am I missing.
Thanks for the help.

You can add items to the navigation pane but I don't think that you can pin items to the main explorer pane where your drives are located.

With an explorer window open you should be able to drag the shortcut to your favorites list in the navigation pane of explorer.
