Re: deleting file from downloads folder closes the downloads folder window

Dan Beaver


I tried the ctrl+d shortcut and it works as it should and the folder stays open.

The ribbons method of deleting files also works as it should and the folder stays open.

this problem only occurs if I select a file and then press the d key.

It is not an empty folder, I select a file first and then it happens
when deleting the file using the delete key.

odd to say the least

Odd, do you ever use file explorer for other things (press Windows+e)
and have you noticed any other issues?

Also which version of Windows are you running? I'm using Rhett latest
fast insider bold of Windows 10. I haven't specifically looked lately,
but I know I've had various Windows, mostly settings Windows, which
either don't respond or close unexpectedly in various builds. I wonder
if this is something similar?

Hi Quinton,

Actually, I am talking about the downloads folder in the "this
pc". I don't have any trouble with my browser which is also the
latest update to Firefox.

Hi Dan,

By downloads folder, do you mean the "This PC - Downloads"
folder in File Explorer, or the downloads folder in your browser?

If that latter, which browser are you using?

I'm using the latest version of Windows 10 insider build
(actually correction - 14905.1000 - the latest fast build has
downloaded and wants to restart my machine), NVDA 2016.3rs2
and Firefox 48.0.2 - I can't reproduce your bug at the moment,
but I'll try again once windows restarts.

doing it.

Literally, I select a file in the downloads folder and
then press the delete key. It does delete the file but it
also closes the folder. What a pain!

I am running windows 10 most recent updates and NVDA
