  1. File explorer issue when opening a folder


    This is driving me mad. I have a folder within my Pictures folder named Funny. I save all kinds of funny pics and videos in there.

    The issue: When I open the Funny folder, it always defaults to a view of the middle section of the files, then after a second or so, it goes to the top like all other folders do when opened. This happened on the old PC before the upgrade and is still happening on the new build with a Pcie x4 nvme ssd.

    I am at a loss on what is causing this. Running Version 20H2 19042.870 currently. This has been happening since 20H1 builds.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Files remain in original folder after moving them to new folder in file explorer

    Hi,

    The issue that you’ve encountered regarding the File Explorer may be caused by some configuration or files mismatched. To sort out your concern, we suggest that you reset the folder settings from the
    Folder Options. This will reboot the folder’s preferences to its default state and remove any possible software conflict. To do this, you may follow these steps:

    • Click Start, type File Explorer, and press
      Enter
      .
    • On the File Explorer window, click the View tab > Options > Change folder and search options > View.
    • Under the Folder views section, click Reset Folders, and then select
      Yes to confirm.
    • Once you’re done, click OK, and then check if the issue persists.

    Note: This process will remove the list of files that you recently opened.


    Let us know if the suggestion works for you.

    Hi Loren,
