  1. Explorer Navigation with arrows selecting objects


    Hello,in the explorer Win + E I navigate through folders pretty often with the arrow keys. When opening a folder with the key 'enter', no object is selected. When pressing the arrow 'down', the second object gets selected. Why not the first one? Because of this I alway have to press 'Down' --> 'Up' to select the first object.Is there a way to fix this? :Kind regardsPhilipp

    :)

  2. Hide or Show User Profile's Personal Folders in Navigation Pane

    Thank you in advance to everyone for your help and time. Hopefully this write-up is succinct. Explorer Navigation with arrows selecting objects :)
    I believe there has to be additional registry modifications to solve this issue.


    Problem:
    In the Navigation Pane, specifically regarding the Current User folder tree, a Personal Folder (i.e. 3D Objects, Contacts, Desktop, etc... ) continues to show even after making active the Hidden property for that Personal Folder.

    Expected Results:
    Any Personal Folder that is marked "Hidden" in the File/Folder Listings Area should also be hidden in the Navigation Pane specifically within the Current User folder tree.

    Steps to recreate the issue: (the following steps assume that the option is deactivated to see hidden folders.)
    1. Open File Explorer
    2. Within Navigation Pane, Right-click over any blank area
    3. Select menu-option "Show All Folders"
    4. Select and Expand the Current User folder tree which is listed as a child object to the "Desktop" folder
    5. Within the File/Folder Listings Area, Right-click on a Personal Folder
    6. Select menu-option "Properties"
    7. Within the new Dialogue window, Select the "General" tab, Select to Activate the Attribute "Hidden", Select the "OK" button
    8. Close File Explorer and then Open File Explorer
    9. Select the Current User folder in the Navigation Pane
    10. Notice the recently-hidden folder is still showing in the Navigation Pane even though it is hidden in the File/Folder Listings Area.

    System Specs:
    • Edition: Windows 10 Home 64bit
    • Version: 1709
    • OS Build: 16299.371
    • Hard Drives: 2 (SSD & Mechanical)
    • C:\ = SSD
    • D:\ = Mechanical

    Current Modifications of System:
    • The %UserProfile% system folder was successfully transferred to D:\ by using Sysprep during Windows Setup. This is the only system folder moved to another drive.

    Current Modifications of File Explorer in Navigation Pane: (using Regedit)
    • Hidden = Quick Access
    • Hidden = Libraries
    • Hidden = OneDrive
    • Hidden = Homegroup
    • Hidden = This PC user personal folders

    Current Modifications of File Explorer in Folder/File Listing Area:
    • Each unwanted Personal Folder was changed to "Hidden" by Right-clicking the folder and Checking the Attribute checkbox marked "Hidden".

    3rd-Party Software Installed:

    • Classic Shell
    • Mozilla Firefox
    • IObit Driver Booster
    • Macrium Reflect
     
  3. Up arrow gone in Explorer in windows 10

    Hi Coloso,

    When you say Up arrow in Explorer, are you referring to File Explorer or Internet Explorer?

    If it is in File Explorer, then try the steps below and check if it helps.

    Restart the computer and check. Also, check for Windows updates.

    Try to run the following commands and check if it helps.

    • Type CMD in Search. Right click on it to run as an administrator.
    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD prompt:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    sfc /scannow

    powershell

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    • Close the CMD window.
    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Missing navigation arrows in Explorer

    Sorry, but hovering doesn't work for me. Example: I click open File Explorer. On the left, under Quick Access are:

    Desktop

    Downloads

    Documents

    (etc)

    I expected to see > to the left of Documents. Clicking it would reveal all the folders in Documents on the left-hand side of the screen. Each of those folders, too, would have a navigation arrow next them.

    The arrows are gone, and hovering does nothing. I'm not a happy camper.
