    Order Changes in Place Bar (2002 SP2)

    Google and Web searches have shown that others experience the frustrations with the order of the icons on the Place Bar changing, seemingly randomly.
    I have conducted some searches but have yet to see a fix or work-around. Has any of the expert Loungers come across a solution?

    What exactly is the "place bar" ? I have never heard of it in combination with Excel.

    The Places Bar is the bar displayed on the left hand side in the Open and Save As dialogs.

    Thanks for the information, I will see if a registry "hack" will stop the problem. From my searching, other people are as frustrated as I am at the re-ordering of new items on the place bar. From my observation (for my machine) it appears to be re-sorting by those "links" that have been used most, the sort of predictive intelligence I find not very intelligent. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> <img src=/S/flags/NewZealand.gif border=0 alt=NewZealand width=30 height=18>

    It is exactly that "intelligence" that I first turn off if I can.
