When using Windows Explorer, I have many windows open. Each has the tree expanded to a different point, or has different branches expanded. The tree (branch expansion) state of each window is independent. So when I search, or navigate to a new branch, or change the tree state, in one Windows Explorer window, the other windows, search results etc that I might have open aren't affected (other than updates for list item changes such as deletion, copy, rename etc).
In XYplorer the tree state is not "per tab" but global.
It means if I expand or collapse branches in one tab those branches get expanded or collapsed for other tabs. It also means when the tree or location changes in one tab, the linked search results changes in other tabs causing search results to be affected. It also means there is only the possibility of one search results tab at a time in XYplorer where Windows Explorer allows multiple searches open simultaneously.
Please, can these be fixed or config options created to allow these behaviors? What I'd like in summary:
- Config option to keep tree state "per tab"
- A larger (or unlimited) number of tabs can contain "search results"
- If tree state is kept "per tab", then search results in one tab are not affected by tree navigation in another tab's tree.
