Windows 7 and the Windows Explorer

Blog Post created by Greg Jankowski Employee on Nov 17, 2009

One of the features of Windows 7 I originally did not take to was the changes made to the Windows Explorer. I always used to the navigation area on the left side to jump quickly between different areas (directories).

 

As you can see below, the left side no longer has the tree display for you disk or network drive. I had completely missed the arrow to the right of each item in the top user bar. When this arrow is selected the drives or directories available are displayed. It's an easy and simple means to jump around without having a huge tree display shown in the left navigation. And it also only shows the items at that level to keep the length of the list shorter.
