My Network Places – Windows 7

I have been going CRAZY trying to locate My Network Places in Windows 7.  I mean, to the point of where I was about to chuck my computer across the room.

WHY THE FLYING POPSICLES DID MICROSOFT THINK IT WAS SO DAMN CUTE TO REMOVE “MY NETWORK PLACES”?????

I’ve tried changing the properties of the Start Menu. I’ve used teh Google. I’ve even gone so far as to *gasp* search Microsoft forums.

NOTHING.

By chance, because I have a new laptop and my touchpad is so damn sensitive, I found it. And, well, because I’m smrt. Duh.

To save those of you from the aggravation I just experienced, I am sharing my new-found knowledge with you.

1.     Click the Start Menu Button (now referred to by tech support as the “Pearl” – wtf? Seriously? ew.)

2.     Double-click Computer

3.     RIGHT click ANYWHERE in the whitespace

4.    Click Add a Network Location.

5.     TA DA!!

There you go. I am now going to raid the cabinet and hopefully find a chocolate bar to ease my stress.

    TA DA? All I see is a blank dialog box with a blinking cursor. The caption up above is to “Specify the location of your website”. My computer on my home network is sitting right across the room from me, but for the life of me cannot connect to it. I tried the protocol \\server\share with no results either. Tell me WHAT is the magic freakin’ solution?
