I'm really not sure how to say this, but when I click on a document in the right pane of Explorer, I would like the tree pane on the left to open up and show the file that is being navigated through, on the right. You can see from this screenshot that I am in a folder that is part of my D partition, but that the tree pane on the left shows only the D partition, and is tracking with my navigating. I want the information highlighted on the top, to be seen on the left side of the graphic.

I don't know if this is an Explorer option that I need to check, or is something that Classic Shell can take care of...

Tools menu -> Folder Options. On General tab, check the option "Automatically expand to current folder".

Thanks, that is a major improvement. That change shows me the folder that I'm in, and continues expanding in the left tree pane, as I drill down into sub-folders.

Is there a way to get ALL the folders in that D partition to open up? What happens after I made this change, is that the only folder I can see on the tree pane is the one that I am currently in.

Select the path under which you want all folders expanded and press * on the numeric keypad. Be careful of doing this on a folder with MANY subfolders as it may hang Explorer.

Actually, checking that option above made all those "libraries" links appear again, so I'm going to keep this option unchecked. That was what I disliked the most about Vista/Win7 Explorer (actually what I disliked the most about Vista was simply that it froze up all the time, but I digress). So I'll just go back to the old way I had it before.

Thanks anyways.
