Keeping Explorer stable

After converting to Windows 7, the windows explorer slows down productivity by having a kind of dynamic life which drives me nuts.
It seems to automatically or dynamically change order of maps in the tree structure to the most one used.
It also does not keep its tree structure from time to time.

All things summarized: I want the old XP explorer bak since the new behaviour I feel I waist a awfull lot of time setting up the new explorer tree structure every single time I am browsing for something.

I can not find a setting for this in Windows 7, but I gues it must be somewhere.

I'm not entirely sure of what you're asking for here. Can you post a screenshot of Explorer that show what you mean?


But if you want Explorer to navigate to and highlight the current folder in the tree structure, do this:
  1. Click "Organize", then click "Folder and search options"
  2. In the "General" tab, add checkmarks to both options under "Navigation Pane"
  3. Click OK

Im not quite sure what you are referring to, but this may help.

In control panel go to folder options. under general check the box "show all folders" you can also check the box automatically expand to current folder if you like, thats more of a preference.

ooops... I guess the previous post said the same thing.
