Windows 7: Highest level folders on Windows Explorer

04 Oct 2009   #11

W7 Ult x64 and W8 Pro x64

SqonkSC and antt:

As I stated I tried Favorites and I think I understand how Favorites works. I am not saying Favorites is useless. I see its usefulness depending upon circumstances. In my case there are four folders among many others in D: drive I frequently need to access. So, I put their short-cuts in Favorites. Each of them has sub-folders. The problem is that I very often need to examine what are in many of the sub-folders before proceeding to next down sub-folders or to a list of files. Note that very often I do not remember name of the destination sub-folder. After having tried Favorites I felt it easier to use folder tree than Favorites.

go below and uncheck favorites
To customize the right pane of the Start menu

  1. You can add or remove items, such as Computer, Control Panel, and Pictures, that appear on the right side of the Start menu. You can also change some items so that they appear as links or menus.
  2. Right click the start button and select Properties.
  3. Click the Start Menu tab, and then click Customize.
  4. In the Customize Start Menu dialog box, select the options in the list that you want, click OK, and then click OK again.
My apology that I overlooked your response.
The Favorites I want to get rid of is not the one on the right pane of the Start menu but the one on the left pane on Windows Explorer.
Thanks anyway for trying to help me.
