    Can't Hide Collapsible Folders


    I recently reformatted my computer, and now both My Documents and My Pictures are displaying collapsible folders at the top of windows explorer.

    Click image for larger version

    Is there a way to hide these so it just shows the files, and not the collapsible folders?

    Hello Johneyson, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You can set the folder view to Group by -> (None) to stop this.

    Sort by, Group by, and Arrange by Items in Windows 8 File Explorer

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
