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
Regards

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.

My Computer should be listed on the left right below My Documents.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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