Windows 7: Get directory tree in left side of Windows Explorer???

Get directory tree in left side of Windows Explorer???

Hello!

I have some directory like: C:\contract\Bank_statements\self\main\2\ which I want to open in Windows Explorer (Windows 7).

I copy this path to Windows Explorer address bar and it opens the directory.

But I want on the left hand side of Windows Explorer to see the directory tree OPENED on this directory and not on Desktop. How to do this? Currently I need to click on lot of '+' in directory tree to consequently open each following directory to reach C:\contract\Bank_statements\self\main\2\ and this is really time-waisting.

Would appreciate any help in this subject.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

You could put that folder you are trying to access under your Favorites column in the navigation pane have a look at this tutorial Favorites - Links - Add or Remove in Navigation Pane there's also some related tutorials at the bottom that may help also.

Jery, thanks for this, but I don't want to add any folder I access to my Favorites. I just want to open any folder (distant from the Root) tree without clicking many times on '+', just straight away expand all the tree up to this folder.

Wondering why this Windows XP functionality vanished in Windows 7 and how other people work with Windows Explorer.

Cool, I found the solution, here it is:

In Windows Explorer click "Organize" button (top panel, Left) -> "Folder and search options" -> "Navigation Pane" check the box "Automatically expand to current folder".
