Sorry, but I don't think that is possible. The only place I've seen folder trees as you mention is within Regedit. It is not available elsewhere.

Hello yxg,

I just tested the REG option in the link you posted above, but it does not work in Windows 7. It appears that feature has been removed in Windows 7.

Yes, it has been removed in Windows 7. For a pretty comprehensive list of features removed from Windows 7 you can look here:

you can get the lines back. Install a free program called Classic Shell, and set it to windows XP classic view and your computer will look and act like windows XP. Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements

I like the old look. It works with Windows 8 as well, restoring functionality back to the user, with a start button. You can also set it to vista look or win98 look too.

Per pixels303: "Install a free program called Classic Shell, and set it to windows XP classic view and your computer will look and act like windows XP".

I keep seeing this kind of statement all over the internet. I do have classic shell installed, yet when I set it to windows XP classic view, nothing happens. It's not working for me.

as far as I can see, you need to change your navigation pane to windows xp "classic style".

I am not sure if there is something else I did to permit these lines. I don't have another win7 machine to test it on where it was too long ago (over a year ago) to remember what I did. I do however see these lines, and I am very pleased thus far with classic shell....

Now if only a guy could get the same search functionality back from the xp days, as the new one sucks, and the agent randsack isn't integrated into the shell like it was in xp.

I have even used classic shell in win8, even though it took me over two hours to find out how to install software in win8 (broken smart phone GUI with no options) but win 8 had a crippled graphics engine. At least I can still run games from xp on win7 for the most part. Nuf said. If it doesn't work for ya in classic xp mode, let me know, I'll make a better effort to break it to see what I did.
