Favorites in the Windows dialogues

Postby jsg019 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 4:07 am

Hi ... nice program.
I want to customize my Windows 7 "places" for Open and Save As. Specifically, I want to add the Favorites folder that appears when I open Windows Explorer. Instead of getting that set of Favorites, however, I get my Internet Explorer Favorites ... which is not at all the same set. It contains Internet Shortcuts (URLs) instead of disk file locations and names.
How can I do what I want, please?
THANKS!

You can't do that with Places Bar Editor but you should easily be able to do that by mapping a Shortcut to your Internet Favorites (Bookmarks) folder to that Favorites folder of the Open Dialog.
