Tree view in Windows Explorer

Have you also missed the ability to have a tree-out view in Windows Explorer?

I don't remember when it disappeared, but it must have been a long time ago. Yesterday I realized that maybe it didn't go away, but that it might actually still be there. So I asked Google, and yes, it was probably still there. Here's how to do it:

  • Open File Explorer.
  • Click View from the Main Menu.
  • Click Options > Change folder and search options.
  • Click the View tab, then under Advanced settings list, tick or check the following items:
  • Files and Folders > Hidden files and folders
  • Show hidden files, folders, or drives.
  • Navigation pane
  • Expand to open folder
  • Show all folders
  • Show libraries
  • Click Apply, then OK.
  • Close and relaunch the File Explorer and see if the entire folder pane tree will show when you expand it.
