  2. File Explorer navigation pane sometimes expands to show all folders and sometimes consolidates shows only the selected folder

    Both the folders that expand fully and those that partially expand have exactly the same settings, which are as you suggested, so this didn't solve the problem. Any other ideas?

    Expanding folders in file explorer

    Hi,

    In answer to your query, yes, there's an option to change the Folder View Options of your File Explorer. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Click File tab.
    • Select Change folder and search options.
    • Click View tab.
    • Under Advanced settings, scroll down to Navigation pane.
    • Check Expand to open folder, Show all folders, and
      Show libraries.

    You can also check all the options, and set it up the way you wanted.

    We'll be here if you need more help.

  4. Show All Folders setting for a File Explorer 's Navigation Pane make it expand to open folder

    File Explorer navigation pane sometimes expands to show all folders and sometimes consolidates shows only the selected folder

    Hi Bruce,

    I just want to verify if what you want to establish is to set the navigation pane to display the major folder and expand the consolidated list of sub-folders when you select or click a single folder in the File Explorer main page? If so, please follow the
    steps below:

    • Launch File Explorer, then click View on the top.
    • On the right pane, click Options > Change folder and search options.
    • On the Folder options > General tab, make sure the Open each folder in the same window is selected.
    • Click Apply.
    • On the same Folder options window, click the View tab.
    • Under Advanced settings, scroll down to Navigation pane and tick
      Expand to open folder.
    • Click Apply, then OK.

    Once done, close File Explorer and relaunch it. Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Regards.
