    Make my favorites be expanded by default in Windows Explor

    My windows explorer opens like this before

    Click image for larger version

    My favorites is expanded by default. I have more than 100 shortcuts on my favorites.

    Now it opens like this
    Favorites is not expanded

    Click image for larger version

    I want it to be like before or like in the first picture because it was convenient for me.
    Thanks in advance if you know how do I change this back to what I got used to.

    On my system (Windows 8.0 64 bit) if I expand Favorites and close the Explorer window, then next time I open Explorer it is expanded. If I close a folder with Favorites unexpanded, that is how it opens. Did you try clicking the arrow to expand favorites, then closing the folder?

    I don't see any other way to adjust it. In folder options there is just a check box to show favorites or not show them. Nothing about expansion.

In general, I like Windows 8, but there's one thing bugging me. If I'm working on the desktop and click a link in the email, it will open the metro browser, whereas I would prefer it to open a new tab in the desktop - seeing as I'm actually using the desktop at that time. Is there a way to...
