Hello,

since we're on Office 2010, I've noticed that in Excel and Word, when I click on open, the look in view doesn't show the whole drives available but only the folder on which we are. Is it any way to change this setting somewhere? Please see attachment for more details.

Look In View

This appears to be a known issue on XP and it doesn't look like it'll be fixed: The "File Open," "File Save," and "Insert File" dialog boxes in Microsoft Office do not show network drives in Windows XP

This exactly our issue. Any ideas if we can put my computer by default in the view? that would solve the issue.

None that I can find and it appears that Microsoft is not inclined to change it from reading the KB article.
