Windows 7: sub directories do not show up in Window Explorer if I use Library

sub directories do not show up in Window Explorer if I use Library

I have a folder in My Documents. If I start from my documents and go into the folder then the subfolders show up in Windows Explorer. If I go the the Documents library and go into the folder directly from there the sub directories do not show up.
Any clues please?
Thanks,
Chas

Hello Chas, and welcome to Seven Forums.



While in the "Documents" library, see if clicking on View (Menu bar) and below may help.
  • Group by (if listed) -> set to (None) (if displayed)
  • Arrange by -> set to Folder
  • Sort by -> set to Name and Ascending
File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Peek Explorer Window - Show List instead of Thumbnail?
When I peek at an explorer window, if less than 10 explorer windows are open then it shows a thumbnail of each folder. If more than 10 explorer windows are open, it shows a list of the complete path to each folder. I find the list much more useful. Is there a setting to change the behavior to...
