I just picked up a older dell with Windows 7 installed. In the process of getting things setup the way I like them I ran into an issue with explorer. I can't get it to stay in a dual pane view with the folder tree on the left.
At first I just pinned explorer to the taskbar and all it would do is open to the "libraries" view, no folder tree. Then I created a shortcut and added /e to the target line and all seemed well. However when I do this two things happen. I have the original explorer icon on the taskbar, as well as a new one for the open window and as soon as I click on a folder in the folder tree the folder opens and the folder tree goes away.
Anyone out there got advice for a Windows 7 noob? I've spent close to two hours searching for an answer to this but haven't turned up anything. Thanks for reading!
