Disabling Navigation Pane for Single Folder

Good night,

Is there any way I can disable Explorer's navigation pane for just a single folder when I open it from a desktop shortcut?

Thank you very much.

Hello Miguel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but the navigation pan can only be turned on or off for all folders in Windows Explorer.

You might see if using either option below may be able to help using the navigation pane eaier to use if that is the issue.

Navigation Pane - Show All Folders


Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder

Hope this may help,
