    How do I stop the file explorer previews from changing size dynamically as the number of...


    I have a lot of file explorer windows open

    I want to delete them all except the first one

    I hover over the file explorer icon in the toolbar

    Previews of all the open windows appears

    I move my cursor to the top right of one of the windows and click on the X

    That window closes but the shape and size of all the other windows changes, so now my cursor is not over the X on the next window in the list


    When I close one of the many windows in the toolbar preview I want the next window in the list to appear in exactly the same place as the closed window, so I can quickly and efficiently close many windows at once like it was in previous versions of windows

    Also interested in learning what advantages of the current was of doing things I might be missing. Apart from aesthetics.

    :)
