Re: 3 and a half floppy

In all my computing years, I've never mucked with windows explorer. It's not even what pops up when you type a path in the run dialog.

MessageYou can either hit the down arrow twice quickly to bypass the a drive or better yet, when you get to windows explorer, hit tab to get to the list view that way when you down arrow to the floppy drive it doesn't actually select it unless you hit the enter key.

  Subject: 3 and a half floppy


  Heya listers,

This maybe a silly request but when I'm scrolling up and down in windows explorer then My Computer and my 3 and a half floppy is first on this list it keeps popping up a dialog box asking to pop in a disk and all I want to do is go to my hard drives. Is there a way around this with still just strolling down? and stopping that dialog box popping up?

  Cheers,

  Jim
