I think I know what you mean.  I prefer a more traditional Windows Explorer interface, also.  I described it in detail in this previous question:

Not really, that is why I asked.

In that link, you answered how to change the look of it. So what is it that you are looking to do?

Once thing I miss is the Up arrow in the toolbar, to go to the parent directory (not the previous directory). I guess alt+up arrow accomplishes this, but not as convenient.
