Windows 7: Default area selected for folders in explorer window??

25 Jun 2012   #1

Default area selected for folders in explorer window??

So i have created some shortcuts to quicklaunch certain folders.

Some of them open and i can use the arrow keys to scroll through the items in the folder.

Some of them open with the "Name" column selected, so the arrow keys don't initially scroll through the items in the folder.

I know this is very specific, but there HAS GOT to be a way to define what it opens to by default... especially since some of my folders default to the list of items within the folder.
