Windows Explorer

By tensasjohnny ·
When ever I go back the the folder that contains my music it's always back at the top of the folder. How do I get it to stay pointed to the last song I played? I've turned of "Indexing Services" and unchecked "Automatically search for networks, folders and printers".

Windows Explorer

In Windows Explorer whenever you back to the previous folder then the folder display always goto the top. Asper my knowledge there is no way to do what you suggest.

MehulBhai is correct....

What you want is not possible, at least with Windows Explorer. However, there may well be some 3rd party application which does that. Have you searched the Internet for one?

You could always just Minimize it instead of closing it down ...

Then you can go off and do whatever else you're needing to do.

When you again Maximize Windows Explorer, it'll still be sitting highlighting whatever file you last clicked on.

But if you're talking about going back after a system shutdown - forget it. As the others have already said, you are asking too much.

At least it still opens in the same directory - imagine your frustration if it opened at the TOP of the directory tree, or even in the root of your hard drive!!

However, if Windows Explorer is causing the problem ...

By that I mean, you are experiencing the directory returning to the TOP because you within Windows Explorer you are navigating away to another directory, then when you return to your music directory it has re-set to the TOP of the file list.

If that is the case, it is because you can only view one directory window at a time. Try using 2xExplorer ~ it is an alternative utility to Windows Explorer, functioning in exactly the same way EXCEPT that it lets you view TWO directories simultaneously, so you can see your source and destination directories without navigating away from one in order to 'see' the other.

Download it from here:

I've been using this particular program for over 13 years now and would be stumped without it.
