Hello all, first post here so be nice ;)

In WindowsXP when using the folder view in any window, in the tree on the left if you have zip files in the folder it shows them all in the tree list, which makes that list huge if i have alot of zip files!

Is there anyway to turn it of so it doesnt show them in the tree view?

Tools | Folder Options | "View" tab-->Files and Folders | Remove the check mark next to "Simple Folder View." That will remove the zip folders from the directory tree list on the left and leave them listed as zip files in the right pane only.
