I am using Window 98 first edition.

My Wndow Explorer has some unusual behaviour after an upgrade of IE5 to IE5.5

I hope I can make myself clear.

Harddisk=drive C
Subfolder A
and inside A, a sub-subfolder B

When I am in Window Explorer, in the left window I click on drive C, then subfolder A and then Sub folder B, to make the right hand window display contents of C:\A\B ; if I want to close the display, I would click on the "-" sign next to C:\, and the whole tree will close off.

However after I upgraded IE 5.5, when I click the "-" to close,
the tree will collapse for split second and then reopens, showing the tree structure, and the right hand window window will show the contents of C:\, to collapse the tree I have to click the "-" once again.

How do I make it behave like before? that is, one click on the "-" will close off the tree.

I am baffled.

I think I understand... & I believe you have to reset your folder options...

go to start/settings/control panel/folder options & general as well as view
set the way you want it to be there

I tried, the only way I can get to work the way it was , was to set it to classic style, as soon as I set it to "web page", then the bad behaviour starts
