Question how to get a desktop navigator like the one in Windows ?

I mean a navigator like the one found in Windows system.
it has horizontal and vertical drop down options...so we don't have to open several folder to reach out to the one buried very deep.
Please see the attached image to get an idea of what i'm trying to ask for.

Have you tried the Tree option for the side pane in Nautilus?

View | Sidebar | Tree

There's an option in Nautilus Preferences to control whether this shows files or just folders.

The main problem with this Tree is that it indents and gets quite wide with nested folders.

In KDE that's the Quick Access Widget. There should be an extension for Gnome Shell, if that's what you're using. Can't remember what it's called though. It used to be the 'Places' menu in Gnome 2.

Question please help me transform my panel menu appearance.

My menu appears very boring and colourless.
I've attached the image for same.

I discovered this menu which looks more vibrant and user-friendly...


I think it is native fedora16 menu.
Please help me change my menu appearance to that one.
