    The windows explorer command (not explorer.exe) works from the quick launch tool bar but does not work from the MS Office tool bar; the error message is 'there was a problem sending the command to the program'. Previously, it worked from this tool bar, and then stopped working. All other commands from this tool bar including explorer.exe work. However, Explorer.exe starts with 'My documents and one has then to get to c:\ after expanding 'my computer'. Explorer.scf works when it is double clicked in the folder in which the buttons of the MSOffice tool bar are stored.

    I would like to know why explorer.scf does not work from the MSOffice tool bar, and what can be done to fix this; what does the extension *.scf mean?

    Is there a way that one can change the position of folders in the Windows explorer? e.g. to have 'My Computer' rather than my documents on the top?

    Thank you,
