Sorry to dig this up, but does anyone know how to make this work for ALL file/folder browsers in all applications.
The option in this thread makes the drive letters show up first in Windows Explorer, but if you open Excel (or whatever) and try to open a file, the drop down will show drive letters after the label. Anyone know a way to change that?
This only works for the "Computer" window in Windows Explorer, and not in any other window that may show the HDD.
If it's not working in the "Computer" window like in the example screenshots at the top of the tutorial, then I'm not sure why it wouldn't be for you unless there may be some Russian and English difference for the registry entries.
i hope you dont mind me mentioning there is a program that will change this function for you along with a collection of tools to tweak windows 7. Ultimate Windows Tweaker, a Tweak UI for Windows 7 & Vista (the windows club)
