cannot enter newly created folders

Post by ghidley@ucsd.edu »

In XYplorer 21.70.0100 I created a new folder (right click=>NewFolder) and then double clicked mouse to enter it ... nothing happens, no visual feedback and I remain in the current (parent directory). Once I enter the same folder with Windows Explorer, I can now enter it within XYplorer. Same problem when I drag and drop (copy) a folder from my Desktop into a location opened in XYplorer. I am using Windows 10 Pro version 20H2 OS build 19042.1052

Is this a bug or a feature :wink:

thanks
greg

You double-click on the icon or caption of that folder? Does it get selected at least (blue rectangle under the caption)? Got a screenshot?

Problem resolved ... it was a mouse click setting ("double click speed") problem ... when I right click and select Open I can enter the folder just fine.

Well, double click is supposed to work, too. :) I hope it does now.
