Just gave that a try but it didnt' work, opened it as the next folder as usual.

Gave Ctrl+Shift a try though and that opened a new window, but just the same as I have been describing, with the tree (Nav) view.

Thanks for the try though.

Hello WBFAir,

You can turn off the navigation pane to only have the files and folders display in Windows Explorer without a folder tree, but this will affect all windows.

Hope this may help,
