    How do I add and remove shortcuts on the left-hand side of the "Save as" dialogue box (currently History, Desktop, My Computer and Network), and can I change the default view from List to Details)?

    Thanks for the first part Tony, but changing to Details under View is what I am doing all the time - I would like to set the default View to Details.

    Try this:

    - Open a Windows Explorer window

    - On the View menu, click Details .

    - Sort the items you way you want them, then click View (or Tools) > Folder Options > View > Like Current Folder > OK

    - Now press and hold down the CTRL key, and then, keeping the Ctrl key depressed, quit Windows Explorer by clicking Close in the File Menu.

    - Release the CTRL key.

    - Restart your computer.


    If no joy, from Kelly's site :


    Go to - Start/Run/Regedit and Delete these two keys, reboot then re-set your folder options.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags


    Good luck,
