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.

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