OS X Style Folders in Windows 7?
April 18, 2011 7:56 PM   Subscribe

Is there any way in Windows 7, an application or setting, to get folders to behave like in Mac OS X? I mean specifically the little triangles you can click to expand the folder so you can work with the contents without going into the folder.

Windows drives me crazy when I have a folder full of more folders, and I need to move files from those folders into the enclosing folder. Right now, all I can do is open all those folders in new windows and drag them out that way. It's incredibly tedious. There has to be a better way.

I think what you want is tree view.

Windows Key + E can be your best friend. It opens Windows Explorer in tree view.

Response by poster: Well, I was hoping there was a more OSX-y (Ocksey?) solution out there, but I guess I'll have to get used to this method. Thanks for the responses!
