Just to understand you:
Let's say you are on desktop folder and you paste a path like C:\Program files in the address bar and the list navigates to that path but tree stays where it is i.e. stays focused on desktop?
Yes. Typically occurs with environment variable path type (%ProgramFiles%\blah\blah\blah, %ProgramData%, %UserProfile%, etc.) Note: When 'it' happens, the Tree View gets the background color of the "Lock Tree" checked/enabled but "Lock Tree" isn't enabled/checked and it isn't enabled. I didn't make the association of the "Lock Tree" until your comment. I've never checked or enabled "Lock Tree". In v10.80.0303 and before it was occurring rather frequently. In v10.80.0308 I'm currently unable to reproduce. I'm betting it's associated with Scripting, I get the Branch View "? /:flat" http://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7587
in the AB after the Script ends sporadically -- I explicitly make sure Branch View is disabled/removed.
