Ok so I know it is possible to remove things from the libraries pane in explorer which I have done, but this question is not about the explorer libraries pane but it is about the open file/folder/whatever libraries pane. How do you get rid of "Favorites", "Homegroup", and "Network"? If you only use the normal tutorial it will remove it from the open menu of atleast notepad and paint, and I'm sure it does the same for some other windows based programs. But if you use any other program like office when you select open the libraries pane is just how it was at the beginning, how do we change this?

Hope this was clear enough

I want to get rid of these in the save menu too.

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified. If it isn't a file (e.g. Network, etc.) just show me a computer or device name, not some massive image of a router or other waste of my time.

What my plan is, is to remove Desktop from the Navigation Pane maybe using a Registry Hack but I think if it did, it would remove the others too since they expand from Desktop. I never use Desktop from Navigation Pane and just find it to be a nuisance to always have it collapsed and just remove it instead. Is there any method of doing this please?

Hi All!

Growing quite frustrated trying to remove the Navigation Pane from some, but not all, folder views.

I'm old fashioned and like to launch programs by clicking on icons on the desktop. I know there are "better" , newer ways to accomplish this, but each of us is an expert on what we want. I've already heard all the arguments about just "relaxing" to the new Windows 7 paradigm, enjoy the "new car smell" ,etc. and I reject them, so please don't reiterate them again.

I also like an uncluttered desktop. My solution since way back in the Win2K days has been to create folders on the desktop with names appropriate to the icons they contain. In XP I could customize each folder's view to have no URL bar, no menus, no toolbars - in other words, just a "box" that held icons. This customization did not effect other explorer.exe windows (typically popped-up via the Windows-e key combo) which would have the full URL bar, menus, navigation pane on the left, etc.

In Windows 7, it seems as if any settings that I apply to an individual folder view apply to all explorer.exe windows. I've already tried the various folder types such as pictures, general, etc. , but no matter what I do, if I remove the Navigation pane from a folder, it removes it from all.

I'm willing to hack as deeply as needed to correct this annoying behavior. I've already spent (wasted?) a full man-day (24 hours in front of the computer over a period of 6 days) struggling wi... Read more

Answer:Remove Navigation Pane from some folder views?

Hi Again;

Man, this is really driving me nuts! I just can't bring myself to belive that the designers of Windows 7 would provide no mechanism for customizing an individual folder view. It seems insane to presume that the view for one folder would be "perfect" for all folders. If it really is designed this way it represents a huge FAIL.

Any insight at all would be most welcome.

When I open an instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane show little or nothing (no drives, folders, etc.). Also the preview pane does not show a preview for any selected files (See Capture1.JPG).
If I open a second (or higher) instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane functions properly (the preview still does not show) (See Capture2.JPG).
I have previews set to show (See Capture3.JPG).
Also occasionally, the file icons will be blank instead of showing the file type specific icon. When this happens, the address bar also seems to take a long time to load. The load bar will stop before reaching the end and won't finish (See Capture4.JPG).

So i recently changed my theme, and attempted to change the explorerframe, but failed. NOw, i have this strange problem where neither the navigation pane or the navigtion bar show up on various occasions. this is usually when:

2.) When I am navigating to a file inside of a program

Here's what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/FwWiT.png

Notice the difference between the regular explorer and the messed up one. I can't navigate backwards in the messed up one.

Here's a picture of the program i used to change it in the first place (Windows 7 theme manager):

If you guys have any tips then they would be much appreciated!
Cheers, Yort

Answer:Navigation Pane and Navigation Bar not showing up!

The Windows Theme Installer is most likely responsible for corrupting Explorer so I would get rid of it. It's isn't wise to install any third-party utilities which modify Windows' system files, at least not unless you have a complete system backup strategy in place such as a disk image.

System Restore cannot be relied on to get you out trouble because old restore points are automatically deleted when the maximum disk space assigned to SR is reached. So a more permanent system backup method is required, especially in cases where corruption is so bad that Windows won't even start.

Microsoft Word's Navigation pane theoretically has keyboard shortcuts associated with the right-click menu items available there, e.g.:Alt-E: Expand All
Alt-C: Collapse All
In particular, I'd like to know the shortcut sequence to collapse the heading levels displayed to 2. The sequence indicated is Alt-H,Alt-2.

The problem is that I can't figure out how to initiate these shortcuts within the context of the Navigation menu. For instance, when the Navigation pane is active and I use Alt-H, it still shifts focus to the Home tab (the "global" binding of Alt-H).

How can I use keyboard shortcuts to access the menu items in the Navigation pane?

Something that has been bugging the hell out of me, since Vista, is that the old XP file explorer was replaced with the new Libraries opening window. That's fine, but why the hell does Computer have to be all the way to the bottom.

Ya if I was a novice user I might be inclined to use those folders more frequently, but as an IT guru, this is nuts. If I download, move, or copy anything to an external hard drive, USB, or DVD, I always have scroll down the Navigation Pane. This is such a little thing that it's almost stupid that you can't slide these categories up and down. This way users can set their most used categories to the top. If you can move columns back and forth, it makes no sense that you cant do it for the nav pane.

I know I can make a shortcut pointing the file location to %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /E,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} will allow me to create the Computer shortcut which can be use to pin to the taskbar. I've seen 3rd party software bring back the old XP explorer nav pane and I've also seen one that either adds or hides the Navigation Pane items.

It really is silly not to add something like this that is so simple to do for Microsoft. But does anyone know if there's any registry entry I can use, or some 3rd party software that does this for Windows 8?

Answer:Navigation Pane Order

Hi Bad,

Welcome to the "Eight Forums." . . .

Try this; close all the folders above "Computer" then open "Computer" then close Explorer (file manger). Now reopen and everything should be the way you want it. Did this several times to see if any would change and it didn't. This worked for me, albeit it doesn't mean it is the answer you are looking for. . .Good Luck.

Hope to see you around the Eight Forums again an IT guru is always a big plus and the Eights.

Strange, since I thought this had always been a constant since past OS versions. It seems from the screenshots of others, an lack of info that this is a "me" problem.

My username does not appear as a collapsable folder in any forms of the navigation pane UNLESS I pin it to Quick Access, select it from there, then file explorer will account for its mistake and shows the collapsable list. Otherwise, once the instance of file explorer is closed, this option disappears yet again. Sounds like registry, thoughts?

So I have an issue with my Windows 7 Navigation Pane only for save as or open in Word, Excel, and Firefox. My Windows Explorer Navigation Pane is functioning just fine and folders are displayed on the left but if I want to save or open something I am receiving the following screens: (I have included a save page as firefox SS, Word Open SS and Save As Open SS). The kicker is I can't enter what to save the file as in word and it is a rather strange issue. I have checked the registry and am unsure about where this is located and have googled everywhere with no luck. Any help is GREATLY appreciated in resolving this issue.

Sorry that the 3rd SS is cropped, did that accidentally. It basically looks just like the Open SS without the text box. Clicking on the Tools area and the Show Folders area (on save as) does absolutely nothing.

Hopefully I?m in the most appropriate location for this inquiry.

In my pc navigation pane for my main pc it goes Desktop, then the Libraries (Documents, Downloads, etc), Homegroup, Computer (with the listed drives), then last Network. In my secondary pc between Homegroup and Computer it has ?Admin? with many of the same Library menus along with AppData. I would really like to get rid of this extra file location. It used to also have a download location that was a pain and I changed the paths for that but I would still like to get rid of it totally. I was also able to delete some other things that were empty. I think this must be something the previous owner set up as I don?t think I have ever seen one set up like this.

Not sure but for one thing it appears the AppData in that Admin listing is linked to the User AppData files. I certainly don?t want to delete it if I can?t and cause a mess, but I would really like to clean things up. There is enough confusion and potential problems as it is. Anyone know how to do this? I think this may be the default location for AppData so a path may have to be changed or maybe this is some kind of shared folders situation that needs to be undone. I can make a backup of the AppData files in case deleting it needs to be reversed. Or maybe if this is not really a secondary location using up hard drive space there is a way to hide this listing.

Can I please have a few more letters added to the alphabet please. 24 just isn't enough

At the moment I have an XP computer with 6 x 2TB drives in it. No redundant technologies at all. These 6 drives are partitioned to various sizes to accomodate the various categories of information that I have.

For example, I have 2TB set up for movies. I have a drive of 128GB set up just for service packs, updates and patches. 128GB for music... You get the idea.

I just added a 1TB drive for backups. I can then free of the 700gb currently on the server for other purposes (extending existing drives), and so I can get important data backed up regularly.

Problem is, I need to keep a drive spare for my USB stick. So I'm out of drive letters. Oh, I mean on the client, not the server. I have 3 letters left on the server. But my PC has 2 x DVD/RW, 1 x BD-ROM, and 1 Virtual drive. Yes, I have thought about taking one of the DVD drives out.

I've downloaded Librarian and have set up a number of libraries that basically mirror the drive letters. I can access the libraries within applications. But not from "computer" unless I turn on the navigation pane, which drives me nuts.

Since I can't have more letters in the alphabet, I'd really like to get rid of the drive letter concept alltogether if I could and access data inside and outside of applications some other way.

When I click on an item inthe navigation pane and want to scroll down to a certain folder in the main window, the mouse wheel stays on the nav pane. Have to go and click in the main window to scroll.

If you click the navigation pane, then the wheel should in my opinion default over to scroll on the main pane. It's a little bothersome to have to keep clikckingto scroll after i just cliked to open that item in the navitgation pane already.

confused yet? maybe the pic will better describe it. I know it's not a big deal, but......

In Win 7 the preview pane shows whatever option you choose in View albeit Details, List, Tiles etc. This is considered an improvement over XP where you only get the preview you are looking for in Tile mode. There are lots of changes like this in Win 7 compared to XP but generally they are an improvement. It would be nigh impossible to incorporate all the things we liked about XP into Win7.

How do I get the complete list of shortcuts back into my navigation pane? Thanks. Oh and I do have a complete list of shortcuts, only in IE 64 bit.

Is there seriously no way to shift-click folders in the navigation pane and open a new window...?

Is it just me or does Windows 10 have a more 'dumb' explorer? It somehow manages to end up having less power and functionality, even though we have so many new tabs. Which you can't even slide other folders into- they're just menu options.
