Want a different color for My Network Places explorer


Any way to visually differentiate explorer windows when they are connected to a remote box e.g. My Network Places? The icon in the task bar is nicely different enough...I want a clue that i'm looking at a remote drive no matter how I come on the Explorer window.

I bet not.

Mapped drive icons have the 'pipe' laying across the bottom of the icon, representing a network drive..  I know of no way to change the colors of these specific icons, or an individual, one case only, explorer window..

The icon's fine. This isn't a mapped drive situation...i'm on dialup using My Network Places to an FTP connection.

the status bar at the bottom shows "Local Intranet" instead of "My Computer" - will that work?
