Windows Explorer Folder Tree

Is it possible to have the windows explorer folder tree follow the path one extends?

If I enter a subfolder by dubbel clicking on it in the files-pane, I want that folder to become expanded in the treeview as well, ie. as both Vista and XP did.

Try this.. In Windows Explorer on the toolbar click Organize. Then Folder and search options, then check the box that says 'Automaticaly expand to current folder'.

Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder

Explorer Folder Tree, scroll correction?
Hi everyone! I remember in Windows Explorer on Windows XP that when you opened a folder by double clicking it then that folder would move to the top of the folder tree and then expand revealing it's sub-folders. How can we get this behavior in Windows 7 :)
