Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I find it by right clicking on start & clicking on Explore. Seems to provide a more complete version of explore
If I would use it, I would open "My Computer" conveniently placed on the Start Menu and just click the big folders icon to show the left hand pane. I think Microsoft were trying to persuade people to switch from using the "Explorer" view to the "My Computer & Tasks" view.
I don't know why everyone makes this a hard problem. Explorer.exe should be in the Windows folder of the C drive. Just search for "explorer", make a short cut, and place it in the Start menu.
I need your address to send a bloched-up thing I did. Misplaced your address. Help!
How many explorer.exe are there in your Windows folder?
The above article was informative.
I have a file/print server running ME that has been trouble free, except for a blank left pane in Windows Explorer and My Computer. I have tried a number of different run command parameters but no cigar. I suspect a registry problem but haven't a clue whick entry to look for or how to make the left pane show up. Any ideas?
Hi Leo, I tried opening Windows Explorer to access an ftp file but couldnt do it. When i go to windows explorer n type the ftp link it gives an error msg and nothing moves after that. Please help.

I don't think Windows explorer does FTP. Either get a "real"
frp program (FileZilla is free and open source) or use
Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Internet Explorer can do ftp transfers. After typing the address in the bar, the drop down menu (I think under file??) gives the option to allow ftp. After that, and signing in, it should be listed in your network places, and just double click.
It seems to be a very long ordeal but i guess its for our own good.
