File Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have had a couple of users machines with a strange file explorer display list problem, I have tried searching the internet but have not found anything.

    What is happing is that when exploring the My Documents folder I not only see the files that are in my Documents but also all the files that are in sub folders in one combined list but without the folder names being shown

    to illustrate

    My Documents

       a.docx

       b.docx

       c.docx

    ───Folder1

           a1.docx

           b1.docx

           c.docx

    └───Folder2

            a2.docx

            b2.docx

            c.docx

    So instead of just seeing when looking at My Documents:-

    Folder1

    Folder2

    a.docx

    b.docx

    c.docx

    I see:-

    a.docx

    a1.docx

    a2.docx

    b.docx

    b2.docx

    c.docx

    c.docx

    c.docx

    Does anyone know how to stop this?

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    Does this issue only occur in the Documents folder?

    When you create a new file in Folder1, does it automatically appears under the “My Documents” folder?

    Please right click on the a1.docx under the “My Documents” folder and see it’s real location.

    Thanks,
