    So I have recently upgraded to Windows 11 and have just spent a good 30 minutes faffing about trying to figure out or find a way to easily:1. search for a large number of files in a group of folders and sub-folders2. how to collate all the contents of these directories to their root folderI'm unsure if there is a setting that I need to check in the folders options to allow me to do this but all the differnt ways to go about the above tasks that worked for me in Windows 10 do not seem to be working anymore, for me at least.Would be a great help if someone could point me in the right direction a

    Open / Save as dialog boxes - choose whether to expand or collapse as default

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you would like to have a collapsed view of the items on the navigation pane of the File Explorer while saving a file. To do this, I would suggest you to try the steps listed below and see if it works.



    • Open File Explorer
      and click on the View tab.
    • Click on the drop down next to
      Navigation Pane and uncheck Show all folders.
    • Exit File Explorer
      and try saving a file now.


    Regards,

    collapsing/merging a directory in windows 11 File Explorer.

    organize file explorer/keep trees collapsed

    Is it possible to customize file explorer and change the order in which file trees appear?

    Also is it possible to force certain trees to always remain collapsed?

    Quick access is nice and this is useful most of the time, but between Quick Access, OneDrive, This PC, Network there are a lot of options that will force you to scroll quite a long ways.

    I think if I could start with everything collapsed that would solve all of my problems.

    If you can't start with everything collapsed, is it possible to move certain objects to the bottom? I do use one drive, but in my day to day it's not needed so I'd rather have it at the bottom of the list.

    Or if I could set "This PC" as the start page for file explorer, and then create a divider below devices and drives for Quick access, that would be perfect for me.
