Make Windows Explorer left pane expand when navigating in right pane RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I use Windows Explorer, and I'm using the right pane to navigate down through a series of folders, how can I make it also expand the left side folders pane at the same time? I know I can use the bread crumbs at the top but having the other work correctly would also be very nice as it gives a better visual clue to where I am.

  • Open Folder Options on the Organize menu, then choose 'Automatically exapnd to current folder'.

    You do not need to turn on "Show all folders" unless you want to get rid of the categories that are usually in the left navigation pane.
