When I click My Documents, the window is split into two panes. On the left is "File and Folder tasks" with a list of things I can do (like create a new folder). On the right are the folders and files found under My Documents.

I used to be able to change this view and save it and now cannot even find an option for it. What I would like to see are my My Documents Folders in the left pane as tree (which I can make happen which I click FOLDERS atop the window).

I can set it so that there is NO left pane at all, but that's not what I want either.

Is there someway to alter this?

One way to get it to load like that would be to click Start > Run, type in (or copy and paste):

explorer /n,/e,"C:\Documents and Settings\Phlegmbot\My Documents"

and press [Enter].

Note: If necessary, before pressing [Enter], change that Phlegmbot portion to whatever your username is on your computer.

If the result is exactly what you're after, create a shortcut using that same command.
