Windows Explorer 7 command line

Windows Explorer 7 command line

Edit regarding the bounty: I'll accept a working answer that is either command line or programmatically opening explorer, since I'm launching these windows from a program I wrote.

"How can I make them go away for just this window I'm opening?

I don't really think you can. All the extra stuff in the left-pane is a standard part of the Win7 explorer. Any portions of it that you can turn off are turned off globally for all explorer instances in that user's profile. I don't think there has ever been a supported way to turn off explorer features on a per-instance basis.

You might be able to get down and dirty with window handles and Win32 APIs to tweak or hide the widgets that you don't want seen once you've opened your instance. But I can't really give you any pointers where to begin with that."

"Not sure what exactly you really wanted. But I think this will help auto expanding the folder in Windows 7

ps: to enable this go to Tool... > Folder Options and check the expand sub folder. And I guess you get get rid off those that you don't want to see"
