Nice! Finally, unmapped UNC-spec'd network drives show up immediately.

But could there be some indication of where you are (as at the top of an Explorer window)?

If I View\Folder ... g:\tc19, nothing indicates where I am. The left pane has "APPS (G:)" selected but not expanded. ... I don't want it expanded ... I'd much rather see what Explorer shows at the top

so that I can navigate easily, in particular, up and back.

It won't be easy - Microsoft has no interest in providing that info.

1) When using an embedded Explorer browser window, there isn't any field that displays that info.
2) There isn't any API to return that info.
3) There isn't any place to display that info if work around #2.
