Tools > Plugins > "Downloaded" tab > "Add Plugins..." button
The dialog box that opens does not allow for navigation to folders where I have downloaded the plugins.

I do believe that we use the same JFileChooser as all the NB modules. 
Root drive is accessible if you choose "Desktop" and then open "My Computer" in the list.

Hello frankioski, please don't abuse priority, it leads only to unneeded emotions and disrespect...this is no P1 but
barely P2, easy workaround exists as dlipin explained. Furthermore, this is duplicate of 122577, which should be fixed
in coming 6.7 release or dev builds. Please see wiki pointers in 122577 to gain more information about file/directory
choosers on Windows platform.
