It looks like you selected Favorites > Temp in the folder tree? That would just change the file display to go to that folder.
If you then navigate somewhere else (e.g. a sub-folder), via something other than the tree, the tree will sync to that (under This PC or wherever the folder is). Similarly, if you had navigated to G:\Temp via any other method, the tree would sync to that path under This PC.
Leo, you once told me (or someone else and it helped me, too) that there was a setting to jump the tree to the real folder if you clicked a Favorite shortcut. What is the setting that affects that? I can't find it based on the wording of the settings.
The favorites menu just takes you to the folder you click on in the menu, in its real location in the tree.
The favorites branch in the folder tree, OTOH, will not move the tree away from where you clicked, unless you then go into a parent or sub-folder.
(Personally, I think it would be pretty annoying in general if clicking one ting in the tree immediately jumped you to a completely different place in the tree. You could not click more than one favorite, without scrolling back up, if you wanted to look in one place after the other, or clicked the wrong one the first time.)
You shouldn't need to use it in the menu. If you want to use it after clicking something in the folder tree, just put it on a toolbar button or create a hotkey which runs it.
Hmmm, you have inconsistent behavior in your own app.
Your proposed solution is a hack and would involve two actions which negates the whole reason for a Favorite.
I have found a solution: Hide the Favorites in the tree and use the Favorite menu in the lister. Although it also requires two clicks at least it does what I expect. Another option is to create toolbar buttons.
Not ideal but a work around. I am convinced this used to work before.
