    Hi everyone,

    I have a silly question, but it would certainly help relieve a lot of frustration.

    I really like the improvements made to Windows Explorer in Vista and Win7. However, when I go to import any media or open a project within AE on a Windows machine, I seem to get a stripped-down version of Explorer that lacks my handy shortcuts. The same seems to be true for all Adobe products. I distinctly remember a checkbox that read “use OS dialogue” in some older versions of CS, and didn’t know if I was missing something in CS4.

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

    You can drag assets from your Explorer window into your AE window.

    I’m sorry, but my question pertains to the fact that there are certain options in Windows Explorer (like shortcuts, etc) that are not a part of the Explorer dialogue within AE.

    If anyone has any insights into this matter, I would gladly like to hear them!
