Windows Explorer Plus Sign on Bottom Level Folder
Posted on 2001-07-17
I'm running Windows 2000 Professional on a Compaq PII-450, I upgraded this machine from Windows 95 OSR2 a few months ago. I'm running Internet Explorer 5.5, in case that makes a difference.
I've noticed that in Windows Explorer, folders with no subfolders under them have "[+]" plus signs next to them, as if they could be expanded. Clicking on the plus sign doesn't remove it like I remember happening in Windows 95, nor does double-clicking the folder.
This behavior happens in all Windows Explorer windows, whether on networked drives or directly on my C drive.
If this is the way Windows 2000 is supposed to act, I'll award 50 points to whoever gives the most thoughtful response telling me so.
If someone can come up with a registry fix or something to make this behavior go away, I'll award 100 points.
