Drive folder - subfolders

Hello,

Sorry if such a question has been posted before. I couldn't find it.

I don't know how, but suddenly when I double click in a folder inside of a drive folder, the drive folder in the left pane also opens and shows all subfolders.
It wasn't like that before and I tried but could not find a way to restore the original behavior.

Thanks for your help!

I believe you are talking about the Automatically Expand to current folder option which can be found in:

Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder

Control Panel > Folder Options

In the general Tab there is the option "Automatically Expand to current folder"

Is this checked? If so uncheck it.
