  2. How to stop left pane folder from expanding?


    This is driving me nuts, the left pane items auto expand randomly to show all the drivers in Computer for example.

    I then collapse them again, but after a while they expand again.

    How can I stop them from ever expanding?

    I'm not sure what's causing this as on a fresh install this doesn't happen, I have a feeling when I install qBittorrent, after a file is downloaded for example and I double click on it to show it in its downloaded folder, that's when the left pane items auto expand

  3. How to stop left pane folder from expanding?


    Hi Brian,

    I tried all the options, none of the settings mentioned are set to auto expand folders for me, so I think this is a bug in qBittorrent because the moment I open a file/folder from within qBittorrent, it takes me to the location of that folder but in an expanded view on the left pane. I've posted this on their forums now.

    preview/details pane in explorer

    Hi,

    Setting the Preview pane to show or hide in File Explorer will apply to all folders. If you wish to hide the Preview pane in File Explorer, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Tap on View tab.
    • Click Preview Pane to view/hide it.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.
