In several programs, including Outlook Express, I would like to be able to move folders in open Save/Open and Insert Picture dialogs (in order to avoid lots of scrolling). Now my folders are (mostly) at "the end of the line," at the right, in the dialog boxes.

(I would like to see the folders appear at or near the left side when I insert an attachment or a picture or try to open a file in these programs.)

I'm guessing I inadvertently changed a setting (a global setting?) . . . because the folders and their icons used to appear "at the top of the line," readily accessed after selecting File>Open or File/Save.

In my attachment, you can see, as shown by the slider at the bottom, that the folders are at the right side of the window.

I have also tried to fix this, looking for the My Places Bar in the open/save dialogs of several apps, without finding it . . . although I didn't look in all apps.

Try this free download. There are several such tools aimed to achieve the same goal but this is the best IMHO:

Try opening any folder, got to tools, folder options, restore defaults, and click apply to all folders. That may do the trick.

Yeah . . . thanks . . . I tried that with no success, even after restarting the computer.
