Windows 7: Library - show folders minimized by default

Library - show folders minimized by default

So I have library that has 4 folders in it. When I click library is shows all the items in each folder in tree view when I want them all minimized. Want to look like when you click on the locations link at the top once inside library it shows the folder themselves. Any way of doing this?


Also is there a way to export a library? Just the locations it refers to not the actual files themselves? Make it easier setting up pc again in future. kinda like you can copy a bunch of shortcuts to software you might instal later then past them where you want but do this for library.

Always double-click the horizontal header bar of each Location before closing the window. This is the only way I know of to do this. After a while, it will become so automatic that you won't even have to think about it.

Windows Easy Transfer does this by telling it to save your Windows Settings.

1. open my computer click the drop-down menu labeled Organize.

2.select folder and search options.

3.in the navagation pane section there's a check box that says: Automatically expand to current folder. Uncheck it.

Tell me if this was the answer you were looking for

You might have nailed it, except this can be done from any folder since you're always in Windows Explorer.
