Once again I have to preamble this post with; is this really the vista
newsgroup? seeing as how there is very little traffic.
I downloaded beta 1 of vista way back when and realized that it was
impossible to make any intelligent comment on it since nothing worked
and while the new explorer features seemed promising, and extremely
innovating, the ideas were spread out in a way that made it very
difficult to comment on.
Vista RTM comments:
Reducing the explorer sidebar view to a Favorites Links folder is a
great idea (the view in beta 1 was far too complicated with search and
customize-ability intermixed in a way that made it far too complicated)
Now... not everyone are interested in "Pictures" and "Music" as their
default favorite links.
Question 1: How do I create a "Favorite link" in the Favorite folder? I
can change the properties of "Pictures" or "Music", or whatever, but I
don't see a way to create a new Favorite link, only a regular shortcut.
Question 2: Is it possible to integrate the "Favorite links" into the
Start Menu? Clicking on customize, I only see the old school config
screen (Show/Display Picture or Music). How do I replace the "Pictures"
or "Music" in the Start Menu with one of my "Favorite links"
