    instead of the little, hard to navigate favorites dialog, an explorer view of
    the folders would be very nice. drag, drop, etc. I think you get the idea.
    I'm sure if was thought of but got the axe.... un-axe it :)

    Chris, #1 knows it is available. He just doesn't like "the little, hard to
    navigate favorites dialog".

    Yes, the little yellow star (the one with no tooltip, tsk tsk) shows that
    pane, but the "Organize Favorites" dialog has always been a pain. Moving
    things is tedious.
    I'd like to see an Explorer style view.

    A few obvious bugs in the "organize favorites" dialog:
    "New folder" hit escape.
    Result: folder called "New Folder(n)" is left behind.
    Expect no @!#$% "New Folder(n)" folder. This is just lazy.

    Order of items appears to be the same as the "Favorites" menu.
    Result: same order as "Favorites" menu.
    Expect: Alphabetical order. Random ordering like this pervades the file open
    common dialogs.

    "Move" with folder selected gives wierd "Browe" dialog
    Result: Dialog that only shows the first folder in your "Favorites" menu
    Expect: A real, standard, browse dialog.
