Windows 7: Windows Explorer Forward/Back Buttons

20 Mar 2010   #1

Windows Explorer Forward/Back Buttons


I'm looking for a way to make the Windows 7 "back" and "forward" buttons in the top left of the window continue to work even when you have "Open Each Folder in a new window" enabled. Either so that when you press the "back" button it tabs to the previous window you had open, or so that it goes back to that folder anyway. Alternatively, I'd even be okay with a way to put the old go-up-a-folder button up there. As it is, when I open a folder by double clicking on it basically those buttons are worthless since I open each folder in a new window.

Any ideas?

This wont be able to happen mate. You open a new window, and for that window, there are no previous pages. you can use the ctl key to close it (ctl+not sure but go to file>and see what it said under close).

Let us know,

P.S.- finally 100 posts!
