Next time Bal re-installs Windows and wants to know how to stop Windows Explorer automatically expanding folders when you click on them, just whack the following in the registry (via RegEdit):

  • Browse to the User Key of:
    • \Software
    • \Microsoft
    • \Windows
    • \CurrentVersion
    • \Explorer
    • \Advanced
  • Add / Edit the Value Name of FriendlyTree
  • Its Data Type should be REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
  • Set its Value Data to 0 for disabled or 1 for enabled

Stop being so friendly Explorer!
