    Making an open window auto-close when the folder to it is deleted?


    Hi, one thing that's bugged me for a while about Windows 10 is that when I delete a folder and I have that folder open in another window, instead of that open window auto-closing (like it used to do on Windows 7) it instead takes that window up a directory.

    Am I not seeing an obvious check box that can resolve this?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated and I apologise if this is a really simple thing to do *Smile

    :)

    Start Menu and Cortana not working after Windows 10 installation.

    Abdul,

    Summary

    (a) In Safe Mode with Networking, the file folders window being auto-closed by system continues. I request you to fix that issue.

    (b) Since the issue is there in safe mode with networking itself, I did not do a clean boot at all.

    Details

    I did a safe mode with networking and logged in using a user account.

    The windows start menu and Cortana works well there (By the way, they were working well even in normal mode also. No issues.)

    I went to File explorer to c:\ and to a some folder. The folder opened as usual. But in another 45 seconds, this window was auto-closed by the same along with a brief blink of the task bar and the icons on the task bar. I did these steps a couple of times
    and the auto-close happened on every occasion.

    I logged out and then logged in using a Admin account. The file folder auto close happened there too.

    Thanks

    Subbu

    windows powershell auto opens when I boot up my laptop. Can I close it, or can it be stopped from opening? Or doesn't it hurt anything if I click on the X and close it?

    I don't seem to remember that being the case on 7, but will allow for error.

    If there is a change that could be made for this, I'd be interested too, just not sure there is.

    Well, I guess there isn't a change for it. It's a shame, I really don't like how it works as I work on multiple folders/windows being open at once. Once I've finished up deleting folders, I end up with around 20+ windows minimised to the same location, so I then have to close them all off one by one. Ahh well.
