    Since I installed vista SP1, the back button on file open dialog box is no
    longer available for an earlier path. What I mean is:

    1. "Open File" from any application that would pop up an open file dialog box

    2. Navigate to some deep path, such as d:\program files\myapp\mydata

    3. open a file from there so the dialog box goes away

    4. Do step 1 again

    5. at this point, the dialog box should still point to d:\program
    files\myapp\mydata, however, the blue back button is disabled, so I cannot
    easily navigate to upper level directories. Sure, there is the navigation
    bar for the path, but it is not as convenient. It is a bit annoying if I
    need to open several files within a vicinity.

    Is there a way to have the blue back button enabled? such as modifying some
    registry entries? thanks.
