    Windows Explorer - Only show folders that actually have files


    At my office, when we start a new project we create a project folder and add a predetermined set of sub-folders. However early on we only have a few files and they only get added to a few of the many folders. Is there a way in explorer to only see folders that actually have files in them? It would save a lot of time when one starts on a new project as you have to sift through folder after folder only to find they are empty.

    :)

    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
