    Default Why did the Explore option disappear from the context menu of folders ?

    Remember, Windows always had a context menu for folders where an item 'Explore' was displayed. I used to always wonder what was the point in having it but never really got around to asking about it.

    Well Microsoft has removed it! Why? Redundancy!



    When you right-click on Computer in the second column of the Start menu on Windows Vista, the first two options are Open and Explore. On the other hand, in Windows 7, the Explore option is gone, leaving just Open. The customer also noticed that in Windows Vista, the two commands had the same effect and wondered if Explore was removed because it was redundant.

    The response from the product team was a very simple "Yes."
