LOL, open regedit, and clicking on File (menu bar) and Export to see if you see the same as I do instead.

LOL, sorry.

Since it works there, then that means that the program Word 2003 doesn't support this and it will not work in that specific program.

It should work in most programs that officially support Windows 7, and in all included programs/features (ex: Notepad, etc...) in Windows 7.

Hey, I used this trick and it seems to work, but not entirely. I added 5 certain locations now with no problems. Desktop, Documents and three custom locations. The problem I have was when I wanted to add: Desktop, Documents, Computer and two custom locations, the Computer never showed up on any window. "Network" also never showed up when I was trying. So basically, when it was set to Desktop, Documents, Computer and two custom locations, all was fine except the Computer shortcut. So there was only four buttons. When it was set to Desktop, Documents and three custom locations, I could see all 5 buttons everywhere.

I don't even have to restart the app to check the changes. I'm using gpedit.

Any ideas why it is playing like that?

Hello zYx,

Try using MyComputerFolder as the entry in GPEDIT for Computer instead to see if that may work better for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Nope didn't work

Forgot to mention that the Cumputer itself worked when I left one place blank. As soon as I added another place, the computer disappeared... No matter whether it was place 1 or place 5

Strange. What were the custom locations that you used? I'll test using your same Desktop, Documents, Computer and two custom locations to see what happens for me, or if I can find a workaround for you.
