    Windows Explorer in 8.1

    I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro. I noticed in Windows Explorer that on the left panel things are "scrunched" up together (see picture). It is not really a problem, just annoying. Yet Network is fine and correctly spaced. Is there a way to fix this?

    Hello Sean,

    You might see if toggling "Show all folders" on and off may be able to sort it if it's just a glitch from the upgrade.

    Navigation Pane "Show all folders" - Turn On or Off

    Hope this helps,
