moving files in vista windows explorer

Posted: 08-09-2008, 11:43 AM
I'm finding the new windows explorer cumbersome
When I click on the quick launch icon I get a view that's dificult to
navigate
I wish to see at the top of the list
Desktop
My Computer
My Documents
etc.

More like XP so I can get to my drives.

I also find that it's hard to go back and forth between drives.
Navigation is difficult

Is there a 'Classic' option?

Down at the bottom L/H of the "Folders" pane should be a Folders option with
a litle arrow by it. Click the arrow and the list as you described will
show.

thank you
almost there
that shows me the folters
in fact more than I want to see
I'd like to have it show C: and D: open in that view
ALWAYS be visible
I now have it showing my drives
How do I make this the default so it always opens this way and I don't have
to drill through to get to
c, d, e, etc. etc.

Basically how do I get this view to be my default view

and if I open a pane, I can't back arrow to the original folders on left and
lists of whats in the selected folder on the right.
I want the folders to ALWAYS be visible on the left so I can copy and paste
easily

Way it is now, once I select a subfolder, I can't get back to computer on
left.

You can add the C and D drives to the Favorites pane - just drag them there.
