Any time I open a Windows folder, there is a panel on the left with drop down menus "File and Folder Tasks", etc.

If I make the folder window small enough, that panel goes away. Is there a way to prevent that panel in a normal sized window?

Go to the "Control Panel" (you might have to click "Switch to Classis View" on the left menu to switch from Category View) then open "Folder Options" . Under the "Task" option select "Use Windows classic folders" then click "OK"

So it cannot be done on a per window basis?

It is more of an all or nothing option.  You can have folders displayed a certain way individually like list, details, etc. but this is on of off.

This is a round around but you can click search or folders on the toolbar then slide it over to make it smaller.
