I create a folder, call it TEST, on my desktop and click on "ORGANIZE" and then "LAYOUT" and turn off the "NAVIGATION PANE" this is the way I want this folder to appear. I then close the folder. If I re-open it right away it looks as I left
it. However, now I click on "WINDOWS EXPLORER" and it does not have a "NAVIGATION PANE" which it needs, so I click on "ORGANIZE" then "LAYOUT" and then "NAVIGATION PANE". I finish with "WINDOWS EXPLORER" and close it and go back to my "TEST" folder and
lo and behold it has a "NAVIGATION PANE". Shouldn't I be able to maintain different appearances for different folders and applications?
