Windows 7: Is it possible to view documents in a nested view in Win7

Is it possible to view documents in a nested view in Win7

Hello everyone,

I'm currently trying to change my view settings so that I can see my documents/files in a nested view the same as you can view files in a Apple OS.

This is where you have the main folder with an arrow at the left, when you click the arrow then the documents, folders show directly below the main folder.

In this instance I can then see the contents of both folders at the same time.

Is this possible in Windows 7?






I've attached an img as an example.

While it might not be exactly the same as your screen shot, you can save or move all the applicable documents into the one Folder, so when you open that Folder all of them will be shown.

Thank you for your reply Ranger4.

I have wound a work around, itís not what I wanted but kind of works.

Iíve created a new library folder that I can see nested files in the left column of the file explorer.

I was hoping there would be a plug-in that would nest the files for me.

Thanks for your help.
