Windows 7: File explorer behavior

File explorer behavior


I am facing below problem : In file explorer, I see multiple folders i.e as I click the folder it gets add on rather than replace the previous one. This lead to multiple folder available in explorer list.

Issue is shown in the attachment. Expectation is that it should keep only "Indigeneous" folder in file explorer and not all its parent folders

Are you talking about this? Local Disk (C:) v New Folder v Indgencus 2015 DVDRip.XVD-EVO

If so, that is very useful once you get used to it. It's called a bread crumb trail (from the Hansel & Gretel childrens story). What's nice about it is you can click on any section of the visible path and go there. So if you clicked on New Folder, File Explorer would switch to New Folder.

When using Windows Explorer, when I click an expand folder 'triangle' the folder list jumps so that the selected folder is at the bottom of the window. This is very annoying as each time I expand a folder, I must recenter the folder tree. Is there some setting which says 'don't move the folder...
