    Guest Account File Saving and File Details

    I would like a friend to be able to use my guest account to create occasional word documents etc. Could he save files to the computer and, if so, what would the produced and saved by details boxes in the properties information say? I cannot check this myself now, as I have had problems arising from an alternative user account I created, which has resulted in the computer having to be repaired.

How do I get this nasty file browser to never show up? I'd really much rather a normal file explorer window pop up. For example, using Paint Free, I made a nice little picture, then click "Save As". The screen I attached popped up. How do I get this bulky explorer to be replaced by a nice normal...

Is there a way to have more details in file tooltips?
I'm not liking how the details pane looks, to see more info I'd have to stretch out more. I hope in 8.1 they give an option to set the details pane horizontal on the top. Is there a way to have more details show when hovering over files? I much preferred W7's details pane.

What I am trying to do is sort my favorites for the IE10 app. So far there seems to be no way to manually arrange the favorites so what I tried to do was change the sort in the favorites folder under C/USERS/myname etc. I was going to add a 1 to the detail tab in the file properties but I get an...
