    ribbon in m1


    hey guys i thought i'd bring this over to this forum... this was discoverd by 'NaiveUser' on the mdlife forums...

    create a key in registry: HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\CLSID\
    "{4F12FF5D-D319-4A79-8380-9CC80384DC08}"

    now create a string value in this key called "AppID", set its value to "{9198DA45-C7D5-4EFF-A726-78FC547DFF53}"

    there you have it.... open a new explorer window

    i take no credit whatsoever for this.

    Very nice I will give this a try. Thanks for sharing the info jedixo. And for your reg file Kim Jong. I see something on it that I use every day on my home Lan. Copy to folder. Very user friendly. I like it :ninja:
