Every time I open ACAD 2012, a folder named Autodesk is added to my Explore favorites. This happened with other versions as well. Some how, it stopped happening for a long time. Now it is back again.
Does anyone know how to turn this annoyance off?
Right click on the folder and select remove.
Please read posts carefully before responding. I did not ask how to remove a folder from the Favorites. I’ve asked how to stop AutoCAD from adding the folder in the first place.
When you refer to the "favourites" are you referring to the "Favourites" folder in the ACad file dialog, or the Favourites folder in windows explorer (Win7-64bit)? The 2 are different things. For me the Autodesk folder is only in the one in the ACad file dialog, it never appears in the explorer one. And simply deleting the Autodesk folder from there solves it – since it’s only created at install time.
Are you seeing something else?
Neither, actually. As stated, it is in the Explore Favorites. The Windows program used for file management. Running XP/32bit.
BTW, I haven’t installed any recent updates either.
Can you show a screenshot?
Try disabling InfoCenter.. see THIS.
Other than that, I would guess it is an Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer issue.
Wow, too much coffee today?
Thank you for your efforts. I might try the MSI when I’ve got some time.
Wow yourself – Double troll action in a single post? I didn’t think this would be a problem in this forum. Genmech either didn’t read my post clearly, or is being a smart-ass. So it became necessary to explain, to A) clarify, B) prevent further smart-assery or thread-misdirection. That is all. Please note well: Nothing further required here.Filed: CAD
