    Dear all,

    When I open Windows Explorer I see the regular folder structure on the
    right side. (See pic)


    However, when I click a folder (doesn't matter which one) the folder
    structure disappears and I get only the clicked folder contents in the
    window (in this case the folder "Drivers"). (see pic)


    This is opposite how it worked on my computer with Windows XP.

    Anyone an idea how to enable that I always see the folder structure in
    the right window and that when I click a folder I see the contents in
    the left window? could it be a registry setting or something in local

    I am experiencing the same problem as John regarding the tree structure
    disappearing when you click on a folder or drive. I would appreciate
    any help you can give me (your reply to his post was not displayed).
