how to manage explorer select first folder automaticly ?

Hi, i am mad about 'new windows 7 feauture'
how it worked in XP - i an opening the folder in explorer and the first folder is automaticly selected. so with pushing 'enter' i entering this first folder. how it workes in 7 - if i want to enter the firsdt folder i must, for example, 'end' and then 'home' (YES! pressing only home acts too strange) and only then u can enter the first folder. so in xp i can fast reach the third (for exaple) level folder by using only home, enter, home, enter.. how can i fix this bug ? Thanx

That is not a bug, but rather a feature. Home button shortcut is intended to "Display the top of the active window", but do not select items.

You can use Page Up button instead (Page Up, Enter, Page Up, Enter).
