Windows 7: sub folder viewing using arrow keys

sub folder viewing using arrow keys

When I scroll through my subfolders using explorer on the left hand side, it doesn't automatically display the contents on the right unless I use my cursor to manually select the folder, not just by scrolling up or down (right to left work to expand and contract folders). annonying. Ive tried the folder properties bar.

Thanks

Hello windows7mp,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

You can hit enter to open the highlighted folder on the right.

Hope this helps.

Is there a way you can do this without pressing enter so it automatically opens the folders?

Thanks

Hello everyone.. The "e" key and arrow keys (not sure if there are others yet) are working intermittently. I either have to a) reboot the computer only to have it stop working again later, or b) wait for it to start working again on its own. The odd thing about this is that it doesn't matter...
