Windows 7: Viewing tabs in Toolbar

24 Jan 2010   #1

Viewing tabs in Toolbar

In Vista different folders, files and Explorer windows had seperate tabs.
But in 7 they are viewed when clicking on the Software icon, which expands, so you chose which to open.

Is there any way to view thing in 7, in the old way it was viewed in Vista, with seperate tabs for each page, folder or page in the Toolbar - not expanding from the software tab.

Many thanks
