I need to create a Desktop folder on my new Win 7 Home Premium 64 Bit machine that, at its most simplest, would have just shortcut Icons. No preview pane, no menu bars, and especially, no Navigation pane.
I do know how to show/hide the Navigation pane. It appears that it is not possible to hide the Navigation pane in only one specific folder.
I do not want to change the view of Any Other Folders! I wish, for example, to have the Navigation pane remain visible in other folders.
It appears to me that Windows 7 locks us out of being able to completely customize individual folders.
Am I missing some basic understanding?
Are there third party apps to create a simple desktop folder with ability to select the view (i.e. Large Icons, Details)?
