    My Windows 10 File Explorer Problem ...
    In XP I was so used to having only the File Name underlined and using it to open the file.
    I could select a folder and click on the right pane to make sure I was in it and not open a file.
    Windows 10 now underlines and therefore makes every field eligible to open the file.
    If I click in the right pane now, I usually open a file I don't want.
    Does anyone know how to change Windows 10 to underline the Name only
    and therefore make it the only field eligible to open the file?

  3. Win 10 - File Explorer Crashes

    Hello MSFT Support,

    Where have you gone?...this is a major issue for many loyal customers but as you can tell frustration is setting in with many in the lack of direction from Microsoft. I feel like we are trying various home remedies when the problem is with Microsoft File
    Explorer which we rely on being stable and available.

    Having us go to SafeMode is not a solution, also you could create more problems for customers in that BitLocker may come into play, which doesn't appear to be easy way to suspend this in non-Enterprise versions of Win10 before rebooting into SafeMode.

    Please give us some direction or when the fix will be implemented?

    It would be a real shame if you lose loyal customers to Apple or Google but lack of leadership here may steer many in that direction.

    Best Regards!

    Hi Wally and welcome to Tenforums.

    Nothing I am aware of for changing this.

    Free Commander is file manager that many of the members here have suggested to me to use, as I have some file merge issues needing to be resolved. So, I haven't used it yet, but it might help you.

    Thanks Simrick

    Yes, Free Commander does solve my problem.. It's also a massive piece of software with a bunch of goodies. I've installed it and am taking a good look at it now. Give it a go. I think you'll really like it.

    I've run Ultimate Windows Tweaker and it works just fine except for the .mp3 files. They still come up as Full Row Select. I've got a request in to the writer to look at the problem.
