How to use a CLSID in MapBasic to point to the My Computer directory

Products affected: MapInfo Pro™
This functionality is not supported, the File Open Dialog and Windows Explorer are very different despite the Window Explorer functionality being mimicked.

Users may find that they can enter "::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}" which will take them to the My Computer/Computer location if they enter this value in to the file path input box but it is not handled by MapBasic.
