    How to stop left pane folder from expanding?


    This is driving me nuts, the left pane items auto expand randomly to show all the drivers in Computer for example.

    I then collapse them again, but after a while they expand again.

    How can I stop them from ever expanding?

    I'm not sure what's causing this as on a fresh install this doesn't happen, I have a feeling when I install qBittorrent, after a file is downloaded for example and I double click on it to show it in its downloaded folder, that's when the left pane items auto expand

    Hello Phoenix, :)

    It sounds like you're wanting to turn off "Expand to current folder" in the navigation pane.

    Hi Brian,

    I tried all the options, none of the settings mentioned are set to auto expand folders for me, so I think this is a bug in qBittorrent because the moment I open a file/folder from within qBittorrent, it takes me to the location of that folder but in an expanded view on the left pane. I've posted this on their forums now.

    Ok. This is only happening from within qBittorrent then instead of File Explorer.
