Sub-directory indicators vanish from left pane in Explorer
In Explorer directory tree in left pane has Mac-style triangles or plus-sign
boxes to indicate that sub-directories exist. When focus is on left pane
they appear fine. When focus moves to explorer's right pane they all vanish,
leaving only the vertical lines "between" the directories. I can put up some
screenshots if needed.
Any ideas?

This is by design.

In God's name, why? Are subdirectories a secret? Or does something as
mundane and simple as a directory tree have to be fluffed up with pointless
animation?!?

Sorry to unload here but the sheer bulk of Windows-dressing is just stupid.
Has nobody at MS ever heard of keep-it-simple-stupid? Geesh!

Try XYplorer instead! It is KISS. And has some nice subdir indicators. And
shows them all the time.
