In this day and age every menu for any software can be organized but navigation pane cant?

I want to remove favorites and to move computer to the top.

Also, every time I click a folder, computer moves down again. What is with that?

Also, I would like to be able to single click in the navigation pane like in XP. Why do I have to double click in that pane? Doesn't it defeat the purpose of the navigation pane? I could just double click in the main window area.

for get customizing the navigation pane i want to get rid of it in certain folders with out it becoming universal across all folder. microsoft should have left the option for classic folders in the os.

I too HATE this behavior! it is DriVing mENuutzzz ... whirrr click ...

I just want my old XP-style Explorer back! I've spent hours trying other Explorer replacemenst; none are satisfying, and the new win7 explorer is horribly broken! Annoying Favorites, Desktop is always there, no "up one level" button - why oh why can't I just look at the files on my disks? is this asking too much? <sob>
