Disabling the fading of the open/close icons in the navigation pane tree in Windows Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I really hate the fact that the open/close icons disappear when you do not hover them. Is there a setting to disable that behavior?

    Thank you in advance.

  • I'm afraid it is designed how it should be. Perhaps you will prefer to check "Automatically expand to current folder" in Tools==> Folder Options==>General==>Navigation Panel.

  • Thanks, but as I said in another thread, I move to Directory Opus in which there are plenty of settings.

    Microsoft shouldn't disable feature like this without a way to enable it back. I can understand Microsoft changes the defaults settings , but please at least give us a way to modify them back if we are not happy.
