Vista type Windows Explorer

I miss the Windows Explorer of Vista in Win 7! Is there any way for me to fix this?

Hello Kmmyles, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Exactly what part of Windows Explorer are you referring to, and what would you like different about it?

In Vista Explorer there are two panels. The one on the left list all of the folders that I have access too and the right lists the files in those folders. This allows me to easily see where my files are and to move them to the locations of my choice. Any ideas?

Kmmyles,

You can still select folders in the Navigation Pane (left panel) to see the files and folders in it in the main window.

I'm still not sure if this is what you meant, but these links may help more.

Navigation Pane - Show All Folders

and

Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder

and

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Thanks for your suggestions; they were on target. I'm still learning to adjust to Windows 7's peculiarities but with your kind help I'm getting there!
