I'm in transmission business and have to have fast access to a lot of places on the network, over 100. So I setup folders with related shortcuts on the desktop and setup explorer to 'open each folder in its own window’. Which worked like a charm in XP and Server 2003. There is a FOLDER button on the tool bar which I flip if navigation pane is needed and it stops opening folders in a new window and acts like normal explorer, while my other folders are sitting in their individual windows and most important, remember their settings. Well, that was then.
Now we upgraded to server 2008 and win 7 and this setup is not working. The original folders with shortcuts do not remember their settings and have navigation pane, so I have to scroll or reset every time I open them. If I turn off navigation pane in the shortcut folders, then Explorer does not have it, but if I turn it on, the folders are screwed up. If I set 'open in it's own window', the Explorer with navigation pane is opening in multitude, which it never done before.
Are there any suggestions how to setup quick access to many places in organized way? I would really appreciate it. Alla
