    How to customize file and folder views


    By Fred Langa

    Windows 7 and 8 lost some useful options for organizing files and folders features fully supported in XP and Vista. Here's how to regain similar functionality. Plus: A query about anti-malware recommendations and a discussion about more problems with updater apps.

    I thought: "Windows 95 and later lost some useful options for organizing files and folders features fully supported in Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups 3.11" With the old File Manager it used to be so easy to open two or more folders side by side to copy files, without needing to open multiple instances of Windows Explorer, resize them etc. etc.

    There are third-party solutions, but I still don't know why Microsoft removed that functionality.

    I installed XYPlorerFree on my Win7 system and like it so much I also installed in on my XP system. It bypasses all the shortcomings of Windows Explorer. See http://www.xyplorer.com/ After installing Explorer in Win7 I tried 3 or 4 other replacement programs that were not what I was looking for. I give XYplorer a high recommend and you don't have to make any registry changes to use it.
