    Customizing windows in question Windows


    Win 8.1

    So I have a file buried deep in various folders, for example MY SP3 information in this case: invoice as a pdf file.

    To get to that file I must go: > My Cloud> Documents> Hardware>Microsoft>SP3> file.

    All these folder related windows stay open when finally get to my file.

    QUESTION: How can I eliminate all these open windows and see only one open window when I get to the file?

    Found solution in Control Panel: Folder options, set to "open each folder in same window."

    I can find solutions once I write the problem out.
