Thank you

I believe for Windows 7 you can already just right click in the left in the Open Dialog and you can right click on the Favorites "star" in the left hand part of the open dialog and say "Add Current Folder To Favorites". So PB Editor is not really needed in Win 7 dialogs unless your app is using an "older" style windows dialog the the current PB Editor works fine in Win 7.

As for Office 2010 I have yet to get my hands on a copy but I have a feeling they modified it to use the new Win 7 type dialogs so you can use the Favorites star trick like above?

Thank you.

With me, file open in Excel will launch Explorer.

For your info: when using recent locations within Excel 2010 one will get a window something like the below.

again, just fyi.

Obviously running gpedit.msc->User Configuration->Admistratieve Templats->Start menu and taskbar
then Enable "Donot keep history of recently opened documents", will clear the list of recent documents,
which as said, I donot like, but then again, I donot links be visible on the C-drive either.

Maybe, one day in future, MS will allow a relocation of the recent file list..

Thanks again

Ahhh it looks like Office 2010 the Open Dialog is even more different. The only thing you might be able to do is over in "Recent" right click and say "Add current folder to Recent?". if not it looks like they have even taken the ability to customize places away.

Yes

In Office 2010: In any 'Save As' dialogue select the folder you want to add, then right click in the Places panel and accept 'add folder'. Repeat as necessary with additional folders.

The layout in 2013 is even more different.

My workaround is that I have a 'dummy' Excel-sheet in the folders I want to 'pin'.

File->Open: open the excelshet
close Excel
Launch Excel
Then again, File->Open [select computer]
Pin the folder

Well, if you have a dozen of folders you wish to pin, this is a bit of a work.

It seems there is no solution for this.
