Windows Explorer -- How to Find ALL folders???
For starters, pardon the dumbbell question.

OK, how can I find and view all folders on my C: drive using Vista's Windows
Explorer? I've already checked the box to view system folders, but that
didn't help. I am trying to find ALL the folders under
C:\users\myname\apps\........ etc. I can't see anything past the "myname"
folder, although I know it (and many other sub-folders) are there.

This should be easy, but how! Thanks.

Basically, I'd like to see a Windows Explorer tree like that in XP (ah,
those were the days!)

Re: Windows Explorer -- How to Find ALL folders???
Thanks Dave, but No Go.

Per your instructions, I've ticked all possible system file viewing,
protected files, etc., and I still can't see all the folders that I know
exist. Again, in my case, I can't get beyond C:\users\username\..... There
are MANY folders beyond this point, as you know, but I just can't see them
in Win Explorer. Note: my system works perfectly otherwise -- no "problems"
of any kind.

Anyone please?!

Dave, disregard my first reply message to you. I think I've got it working
now. After making the changes you described, I hit "refresh" and didn't
have the folders; however, after CLOSING Win Explorer, then opening again,
all the folders seem to be there.........!
