Hi Brink,

Any suggestions on WATYF's question? I'm also looking for a similar solution.

Thanks!

Hello One19, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but nothing else so far. This only works in the "Computer" window in Windows Explorer.

Ok, I'm not trying to belittle this; I'm just confused and am probably missing something obvious. Why would one want to make this tweak?

So, it's a geek thing and not to accomplish some other purpose? (Btw, I'm not putting down geek things.)
