    Hi Guys!
    Sorry if this was posted already, really busy!

    Well this is my problem...i have a couple of pc´s with windows xp, and i want to disable the windows explorer view, like explore all users by right clicking on the start menu orb. Or simply as when opening the file explorer, never having the left pane with the file list tree, so that no program can activate this view...

    I have older people working in this company and sometimes they just dont let go of the left click on the mouse, making them moving files they are not supposed to.

    We use a access database that views its contents (like docs,pics,gifs) always with this left pane with tree listing of all the folders...

    I would be gratefull for this solution... ;)

    Open Windows Explorer, click "View" in the toolbar, scroll down to Explorer Bar, and in the slideout menu, uncheck "Folders".

    Next click on "Tools" and select "Folder Options" then click the "View" tab. Click the button "Apply to All Folders". Click "OK" on the popup that asks if you really want to do it.

    tried it seem to work, as i open the explorer windows normally, but once I try opening fotos from my Acess database, as you click a button in a form it will open what you want in a directory in the windows explorer...and it still shows the folders in tree view in the left pane....

    is there another solution? :(
