    When i highlight a folder in folder pane with keyboard up or down arrow, the
    details pane does not change accordingly! Even press F5 also cant refresh
    it, need to press enter.

    This is not the case in XP.
    Bad design of vista explorer.

  2. Use the arrow keys to move up/down the list on the left. Then press the
    space bar.

    i know, either press enter or space bar. But why hav to do it this way? why
    not make it automatically?

    And the more i use vista, the more i feel dissappointed. Why the disk
    defragmenter interface is so simple? I can never see how many percentage of
    disk is fragmented, do i need to perform defragmentation, and the current
    status of defragmentation. I can only wait......till it finish without
    knowing what happen. Is this true?

  4. All I can say is some like Vista - some do not. I have no problem with it
    and fall into the first group. You are obviously in the 2nd group and have
    every right to be there if you so desire.

    My gosh. It is so easy to learn new things. Do you grouse and moan when you
    have to learn a new phone number because a close relative has moved?

    When I cease to learn I will be planted beneath the ground.

    I am looking forward to the next version of Windows to see what is
    "different" - not what is the same!

    What a funny example you gave!

    It is NOT NEW things, but it is REDUNDANT thing.
    What for creating a new OS that is more troublesome than the old one??
    What is the point of learning the so-called new thing that just trouble you
    but without any added value?
    Are you improving or just like to change for the sake of change??
    What for to expect for the different which has no advantage but more
    troublesome?

    If you like to make more step for no reason but just to change, ofcos, you
    may.

    Alan u r rite, extremely funny and idiot example he has given!
    Closed relative moved house maybe like to make a change in life, but vista
    new explorer cant make the folder pane and detail pane syncrohised is for
    what reason? Lets guess: More beuty in look? More "special"? Or to sacrifice
    for other functionality?

    I use folder pane often. Vista folder pane is suck!
    What for highlight a folder in folder pane but in detail pane shows the
    files in other folder pane? It is a bug! Not a change!

  10. It is no different that running a program from a desktop. You double click.
    The first click selects the icon and highlights it. The second click opens
    the program for running. Or, you select and press the enter key. Either way
    it is two motions.

    Scroll down to the folder you want to "select". Press the space bar (only
    three inches away from most scroll keys) to open the folder to work with the
    files.

    If the folder opened automatically, as you desire, every folder would open
    as you scroll down the list. If your picture folder happened to be one of
    them it could take a bit of time to render the thumbnails. Would this make
    the system hiccup? I don't know. But why have folders open that you are not
    interested in at that particular moment?

    It is perfectly logical the way it is now done - to me!

    Richard,
    Yes, and that is exactly the way I want the Keyboard Shortcuts to behave, just like it did in the XP Windows Explorer, and just like it did in the REGEDIT tool as well.
    I absolutely hate the fact that I have to press SPACE or ENTER to refresh the Right-Hand Pane in the Vista Windows Explorer. It's my #1 gripe with Vista. I manipulate Files and Folders all day, and this is so annoying. Until I find a way to change this terrible behavior, I will hate Vista.
