Turn Navigation Pane On or Off (Expand to Current Folder option) in Windows 7

When you navigate to a folder via Windows Explorer in Windows 7, “Automatically expand to current folder” is Turned Off by default. I find it rather annoying to always have to ‘manually’ expand the Navigation Pane on the left, each time I navigate to, or open a new folder in the right hand pane.NavigationPane_Win7[1]

Fear not…fix is the way…just right-click on an empty space in the Navigation Pane on the left, and click on “Expand to current folder”, this is off by default and clicking on it will turn it on, so when you reload the context menu it will now have a tick next to it, indicating the option is now on:
