Windows 7: Win 7 explorer drop down

Win 7 explorer drop down

Hi there

Is there any way to get old/proper functionality of the explorer drop down bar?

Currently it shows me a (random?) history of locations. I haven't yet worked out how it decides what goes in there. And as such I find it pretty useless as 9/10 times where I want to go isn't in the list.

I'd much rather it showed all my drives i.e. my file system hierarchy. I noticed in a SAVE box it behaves the way I would like.

Please see attached thumbnails. I had to blank out a couple of details, but you should see what I mean.

thanks all

Explorer Drop Down Menu
Win 7 doesn't seem to have an "Open With" option on the right click or shift right click menu for executables. What I frequently want to do is examine an executable with, for example, WinHex. I'm sure there is a simple registry fix but I can't find it. Help! Thanks
