Reorder items in Windows Explorer navpane RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    is it possible to reorder the items displayed in the navpane of the Windows Explorer. I would prefer that "Computer" appears on top and the "Favorites" at the bottom. Unfortunately I was not able to locate a settings dialog nor a registry key to achieve this. Does anybody here have an idea? I really would appreciate that.

  • Hi Martin,

     

    We currently cannot rearrange the item order for the navigation pane in Windows Explorer via the Windows 7 settings or registry.

     

    You may try to use scripts to check, and it is recommended to post a new thread in Scripting Forums for discussion.

  • Hello Sabrina,

    thanks for the information, althrough it was not the answer I had hoped for. But at least I can tell our customer now, that he simply has to live with it. And where is still the possibility to remove (or better hide) favorites in the Windows Explorer. Thanks again!

  • Hi Martin,

     

    Yes, you may hide it as a workaround.

     

    Windows 7 - Favorites - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane
