    Windows Explorer (XP Pro SP2)

    In Windows Explorer you can see the directory/folder tree in the left hand pane

    However if you have nested folders several layers deep it

    is a pain to hve to click all of them individually. From my (distant) hazy VB coding

    experience I know that you can open or close all links with a button
    and a couple of lines of code.
    Is there any easy way of opening the Windows Explorer tree in one

    click so as to display the treeview with all links but not files visible? I am not familiar with Windows Scripting Language.
    Many thanks for your help

    The * key on the numeric keypad expands everything under the currently selected "node". It is not a very good idea to try this on the C: disk, for example, because the number of folders it usually contains is HUGE, but it can be very handy to display the complete structure under a specifice folder.
