    New Folder with 'standard buttons' (XP-sp2)

    Curious - Is it possible to get back buttons onto a New Folder?

    Do you mean your 'new' folder has a different layout or toolbar from the folder you created it in?

    You can set all folders to have the same view in Tools > Folder Options > View (Apply to all folders)

    I created a new folder
    I would like to encorporate back buttons, if that is possible. From the responses, I'm guessing it's not possible?
    The created folders contain many items, and it would be handy to go "back" to the place you were, rather than closing out the whole folder and starting again.

    Pressing Alt+<!t>[Left Cursor]<!/t> should provide you with that functionality.

    I'm still not sure I understand what you're seeing. Here's a graphic of my test at creating a new folder on my C: drive and there IS a "Back" button shown on the toolbar, in addition to the keyboard alternative that Chris mentions. What do YOU see after creating a new folder?

    This is what mine looks like. What should I do differently? I notice you went to a different spot than I did - mine was on the desktop. All of the "New Folders" look the
    same on my computer. I'm running the "Classic Mode", if that matters?

    Can you display the standard toolbar by selecting View | Toolbars?
