Re: Opening folders in it's own window?
That's good information.
I have a shortcut to WE that is pinned on the Start Menu to open WE with all
drives showing and the Navigation Pane open. (%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
/e, in the Properties/Target line)
I find that if I open WE with this shortcut, close the Navigation pane and
exit, that the Open/Explore right click options wore properly with a test
folder on the Desktop. The next time I use the start menu shortcut to open
WE, the Navigation Pane is back and the right click options still work
This sticks even through a reboot.
