Switch them into shape
There are four ways that Explorer uses to display folders and file.
- It will open a single pane window (no Explorer bar).
- It will allow the user to navigate out of the folder (i.e. to the folder’s parent and beyond).
- The default is for none of the items in a folder to yet be selected.
- If there is already an open Explorer window displaying that folder, then the operating system will switch to that existing view, as opposed to opening a new one.
- /n forces it to open a new window, even if it duplicates a window that is already open.
- /e uses Windows Explorer view (multi-paned).
- /root,X restricts Explorer to showing only the contents of file folder X (and its sub-folders).
- /select,Y automatically selects Y (either a file or folder).
