    Expanding Explorer View (XPproSP2)

    How may I expand Windows Explorer view please?
    I would like My Computer, and C drive expanded (exploded?) when explorer opens.
    (and perhaps E drive when I install my second internal HDD)
    Thank you. Rod.

    I'm guessing that you'd like Windows Explorer to open with MULTIPLE folders expanded in the left pane, as if you had manually clicked the + on the folder tree, for each of the folders. I don't know of an inbuilt way to do this, but there might be some "roundabout" scripting solution or similar.

    Note also the Simple Folder view which affects the way folders are displayed:

    G'day Alan, following the advice here, right click desktop / new / shortcut, and just fill in details. I used it for dropping in URL's I use daily, the script supplied works fine, not sure about Leif's advice I saw no difference, but perhaps I have to reboot. Good luck.

    It's to do with the lines which may help with navigation...
