That's because Alan probably changed Explorer View to not show the Navigation Pane


Yes, I changed the view of File Explorer to always hide the Navigation pane. I've got other ways to navigate that don't gobble up a substantial portion of the window's real estate!


Yet another option would be to create a mouse position command to set the focus to the main folder section.


This is a good time to use the "Mouse Window" command. Saying "Mouse Window... 5... click" usually puts focus into the list of files and folders.


It's a small, but annoying issue for sure. I wish Microsoft would by default set the focus to the main folder section in dialogs by default.


I find the issue more than annoying. I would characterize it as an accessibility and usability failure. The behaviour you describe was the default before Windows 7. 

I used to report these kinds of problems to Microsoft, but I stopped when I realized nobody at Microsoft was paying attention to me!
