    Hi,

    A while ago I followed someone's advice to customize the 'Open' dialog box so that it would be more convenient for me - in opening files of whatever type.

    Unfortunately, I've since renamed some of the folders that (used to) appear on the
    shortlist / quicklist to the left of the image seen in the URL below (well, except for the
    Personal folder; I can't remember how I choose these folders in the first place - how
    do I rectify this situation and restore the shortlist with the renamed folders?

    Thank you
