I want my ftp site link in IE 7 to automatically open up in windows explorer without manually going to "Page">"open ftp site in windows explorer".  I remember i found out how to do it but cant find it anymore on the web.

so once i click on the ftp link in favorites it should take me directly to windows explorer.

Leex1,

Found the following registry tweak out on the web:

To get IE7 to open in folder view everytime make the following registry change: Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_INTERNET_SHELL_FOLDERS. Modify the iexplore.exe DWORD value to 1 (default is 0). Restart IE (if it was open in the first place) and then navigate to the FTP site. NB: you need to make sure the Enable FTP folder view option is selected in IEs advanced settings.

Also found another reference to this tweak here: http://ie7triage.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!3B6634EF5458F389!280.entry (about half way down the page).

Note:  ALWAYS make a backup of your registry before modifying it.

Thanks, I actually found the old document that contains the settings which is exact as yours.  Funny thing is, today, i could not find it on the web.  Thanks anyway.
