Windows Explorer: How to get it to expand like I want?

    When in Windows Explorer, I expand a folders branch using the + sign
    next to the folders name in the Folders pane. Then I do this to
    another folders branch using the same technique. I want them both to
    remain expanded, but when I click on one of the folders in the branch,
    the other branch closes. I want them both to remain open while I
    inspect the contents of one of the branch's folders.

    Is there a way to make it do what I want?

    TIA

    Question is what caused this to change? What you ask for is normal
    behavior. Perhaps you can System Restore to time before it broke?
