The '..' folder??
Is there any way to bring back the '..' folder in Windows Explorer? Having
to drag the mouse halfway across my desk to hit the back button (which is
not really what I wanted to do anyway) is becoming a real pain.

Thanks, Jim

Hi, Jimmy.

> I haven't seen the '..' folder since Windows 3.x


You must mean you haven't see it IN EXPLORER. It's still there in the
Command Prompt window - and still very useful.

But I really like the "bread-crumb" method of accessing upstream folders in
the path in Vista's Explorer.

Doesn't "Backspace" work any more in Explorer?

Hi, Jimmy.

Whoops! I should have changed that long ago! Thanks for reminding me.
