Windows 7: love XP mode - but?

love XP mode - but?

When I use Internet Explorer and want to add a Favorite - does not work?

When I use Window Explorer, I do not see my other hard disk or devices.

I know what I see is a virtual drive. Is there a way to make my current drives accessable?

Found my answer re seeing my other hard disk.
I added the Virtual PC to the same workgroup and now I see all my drives under "my computer"

Still trying to figure out Favorites?

Am I dumb or not?

Of course I cannot see what I added to Favorites - it sits, where it should, under the new user account's Favorites.

I now see that I can copy up my (user) favorites to the virtual PC favorites, if I need them.

Boy! the further I go, the better I like what has been done with XP Mode.
