Fix the Windows Explorer Navigation pane in Windows 7

This may not be news to many but I’ve only just found this out so thought I would share on the Blog. For some reason I cannot fathom Microsoft decided to change the behaviour of Windows Explorer in Windows 7 to not expand folders in the Navigation pane.

The way I work means this is massive pain for me so I was happy when I found out how to fix this:

In folder options you can check “Show all folders” and “Automatically expand to current folder”

Problem Solved!
