    I think that I shall never see...


    Guys, I've done what I know to do. I'm not getting anywhere. If you can help, I sure would like to have Favorites on the navbar act as a treeview. I ran the .reg file as specified. Here's what's in my registry:

    Here's what happens in the navbar:

    So what use is a xcreenshot of Quick Access? Favorites won't show an expansion arrow unless it has subfolders.

    It works for me


    Sorry, guys, the link I posted works for me. Maybe it's a permissions thing. First time using Vimeo, after I saw that tenforums doesn't host uploaded videos. It looks like Callender has posted one that works. And a video is what it is, @KeithM, not a screenshot. If you'll click on the "Start" button at bottom left, you'll see what I'm trying to show.

    And, what I'm trying to show is that "Favorites" has an arrow beside it, indicating that it can be expanded, until that arrow is clicked. Then it disappears and nothing else happens. There are subfolders in Favorites which should show and expand, but they don't.

    OK. Wathced the video. Still don't know more than I did before. You're sure you have actual folders there & not shortcuts? You can run this PowerShell to check: gci $home\links -ad

    Code:
    PS C:\> gci $home\links -ad                                                                           
    
        Directory: C:\Users\keith\links
    
    
    Mode                LastWriteTime         Length Name

    The other thing to check would be the aggregae definitionfor the CLSID under HKCR. Here's my export:

    "Attributes"=dword:f080004d
    This is the result of the HKCU info overlaid the HKLM info.

    Well, no, they're not actual folders, not in my Favorites. They're just shortcuts. That's all I ever put in Favorites.

    Shortcuts of the .lnk variety never expand, they always "jump" to their target.

    In the Expolrer Address bar, type: shell:Links

    Create a real folder there and see if it expands from Favorites.

    If that works, then you want to use mklink (Command Prompt) or New-Item (PowerShell) to create junctions to desired targets.

    Yes, a real folder expands. I had gotten the impression, from the earlier recommendation to use Favorites, that it was going to do so with minimal effort on my part. This is what I originally asked about--if it is possible to get Quick Access to do so.

    Thanks for the information about mlink, etc. What I want may be too transient for that amount of per-item activity, but it's good to know that a means exists.

    My first reply stated that Favorites would hve to be populated with junctions to get the behavior you desire.

    How about a context menu option for folders that would add a namespace junction to Favorites?
