To Expand a Folder, Scroll through Folder Contents,
and Collapse a Folder
Folder windows display the hierarchy of items and the contents of drives and folders in the right pane.
You might want to expand a drive in the navigation pane to view its contents, scroll through its contents, and
collapse it when you are i nished viewing its contents. When a folder is expanded, it lists all the folders it contains.
By contrast, a collapsed folder does not list the folders it contains. The following steps expand, scroll through, and
then collapse the folder identifying your class (CIS 101, in this case).

Double-click the folder identifying
your class (CIS 101, in this case),
which expands the folder to display
its contents and displays a black
arrow to the left of the folder icon
(Figure 35).
Why are the subject folders
indented below the CIS 101
folder in the navigation pane?
It shows that the folders are
contained within the CIS 101
folder.
