Cannot browse to network or local drives.. just home folders
Hard to explain but whenever I go to browse for a file, say when I am uploading something to Joomla, it only shows the my documents folders and won't let me chose the network drives. This seems to happen sometimes but not others.. I can get round it by putting a shorcut to the drives in my documents and some programs let me type in the 'Look In' box but I am going to hit problems if I ever decide to relase this monstrosity on the pupils.
Anyone know how to let it browse the network for files?
When I click on the arrow for the dropdown to browse the files it shows Desktop then my home folder other folders in it like My Documents.... what was wrong with XP's way of doing it??????

Your issue may be down to Network Discovery being turned off.
To check and turn this on do the following: Click on the Orb > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center. (There are quicker ways but this way gives an idea where to find it)
Click 'Choose homegroup and sharing options' then 'Advanced sharing settings'
Click on the Domain dropdown arrow to reveal all options.
Click on both 'Turn on network discovery' and 'Turn on file and printer sharing'
Click save changes and close the window.
Hope this helps

Sorry, doesn't help when its on either.. when I am in Fireworks it just gives me the option for my home folder with recent items and desktop at the top then all the stupid folders W7 creates for you... this happens with other programs too.
