Every other application has "My Computer" listed on the left pane but SolidWorks only has Recent Docs, Desktop, My Docs, Favorites, and My Network Places.
I asked a similar question several months ago and this was the answer that i got: https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/27048
That is correct. I believe there was a thread a while back where a SW person had stated that customisation of that panel was being considered for a future version.
Meanwhile, add a shortcut for My Computer to your Desktop and/or My Documents folders.
That's the one I was thinking of, but I see I didn't remember it quite correctly enough. Good to know (again) that it has been included in the newer OS versions.
Go to Windows 7, there's some wicked useful stuff in that left pane, now. it's one of the cool things Microsoft boosted from Mac OSX
