Remove or Reorder items in common "Browse for" dialog box RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I reorder special items (Network, User folder, Libraries, Favorites) in the Windows 7 common open dialog box? I'm not talking about the Explorer folder view or the Desktop or the newer Open dialog box. Special items in those things can be controlled by going here .

    I'm talking about the older common control that older applications or use. See the image below:

  • It's possible some other Attribute bits in the registry key values in my other thread might affect the entries in the various File-Open dialogs.

    Edit:  Actually, on my system the fix seems to be in for that style of dialog from the settings in that other thread.  Perhaps you need to log out and back in for it to take effect fully.
