Default Explorer left pane - as tree under ALL circumstances?

But if I right-click from an entry in Firefox's "Downloads" window, and
select "Open Containing Folder",


It's the difference between Open and Explore. Open is the Fisher-
Price view that you and I hate, Explore is the two-paned view with
tree at left.

If Explore isn't an option, you're stuck, as far as I'm aware.

(Split Thread)

To whome it may concern :

You *can* restore the "Explore" & "Open" context menu items for "Folders" (that is :
repair what happens when you double-click on a folder) by going to the following
website :

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

....scrolling down to the item :

380. Restore Directory and Folder Shell

....click on the "Folder" to download the reg-file and click the "Save" button.

Then double click on the downloaded reg-file : foldershell.reg to import it.

The default actions "Explore" & "Open" for Folders are now back in place.


P.S. To change the default action from "Explore" to "Open" for Folders, and vice-vis,
goto Control Panel Folder Options and change the open default for "Folders".

Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London. :-)
