Windows 7 is beautiful but, for me, certain things went way way backwards. One of these is the inability to "Explore from Here" as I used to do on Windows XP.

Is there really no way to "Explore from Here" on this super advanced system?

If there is a way to do this, how do I accomplish that?

There was a similar question asked previously. Check out this question, maybe some of the suggested replacements for File Explorer will have what you are looking for: Windows Explore alternative for Windows 7 (file browser like XP)

Thanks. This is a great resource but unfortunately each solution offered there is either an additional tool (I want something that modifies the built-in Windows Explorer) or XP oriented. +1 anyway for the good intentions. – WinWin Feb 11 '11 at 15:06
