    Thanks, I just tried it and it might come in handy. I didn't know it was an option. I have to lengthen this reply by 3 characters, so I'll just say it still doesn't offer a split screen - I know I can open two instances of it, but that involves too much fiddling. I wonder who Microsoft listens to when it brings out a new product or and update? The old Windows used to have a file manager where you could split the screen. I guess they decided we didn't need that anymore. Grumble, grumble. But thanks again though.

    With File Explorer pinned to the taskbar, Right-clicking on it will show a 'Recent' list of folders, provided you have turned on 'Show "Frequently used folders" in Quick Access'. You can click on one to open File Explorer at that folder. You can right-click on one to 'pin it to this list'.

    Most of the third-party file managers can/do open with 2 panels either free or paid versions, can show different Folders from each other. Then there is the free Q-DIR that opens 4 panels in the same window. I don't fully understand your "split screen", maybe it's opening 2 instances then on the right-click of the Taskbar choose stacked or side by side.
