Windows 7: Favorite in Windows Explorer jumps 2 path of folder under drive letter

09 Feb 2016   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit
Favorite in Windows Explorer jumps 2 path of folder under drive letter

When I click on a favorite under 'Favorites' in the folder pane of 'Windows Explorer', it shows the content of that folder in the viewing pane and the favorite is highlighted in the folder pane. This is fine and how it was.

Unfortunately now, when I click on a favorite it still shows the folder in the viewing pane which is still fine BUT in the folder pane it jumps to the actual path of the favorite folder under the drive letter. Therefore, I have to scroll back up to select another Favorite folder. It never use to expand the path under the drive letter.

Does anyone know what has happened? It doesn't do it for the default 'Desktop' favorite but the ones I have put there myself.

It's just very annoying!

Thanks and hope you can help.
