I managed to make a hyperlink to my document folder (c:\etc. etc.), so I can see the (in this case) the alphabetical folders of my research literature,

- - - but I would like to see the whole folder/file tree in the task pane, thus enabling to expand the folders, and to see single pdf-files in these folders,

- - - and respectively - in order to drag and drop pdf-documents (research literature references; like "Shove 1993", "Giddens 1991" etc.) to my map.

As I mentioned above, when I made a hyperlink, the preferred folders can be seen in the task pane browser, but it is not possible to expand / minimize the file-folder tree IN the task pane. When using the hyperlink option, the folder opens up double-clicking straight to the desktop - like it normally does in Windows.

Hope you have solutions to my question.
