We have a SharePoint 2010 Documents library with many folders and files. Is there a way to have a "view" of this library that displays the items similar to Windows Explorer? In other words, we'd like to see the hierarchy when we click to open a folder -- to see the files within it and its folder name. Thank you.
There is an option in the ribbon "Open with Explorer" . This effectively opens the document library in your windows explorer and on the right side of the explorer view you can get to see the hierarchy of the folders and files of the document library.
All you need is update the client browser(IE) with the correct active-x control version that is needed for explorer view and rest is exactly like as if you were browsing a windows directory.
