I'm a bit frustrated. I use Chrome as my main browser in Windows 7 and I have organized my bookmarks by nesting folders in folders for years. When I left click on a folder ad move the cursor down to one of the nested folders, it automatically expands. For a couple of months, this auto expansion has not functioned and I must click on the nested folder to open it. Some are 3-4 levels deep.

Some info:
This is happening ONLY on my desktop computer (the two laptops in the house automatically expand the nested bookmarks).
When I first got the desktop last September, the auto expansion function worked perfectly.
It is happening in Chrome, IE 10 (my alternate) and Firefox (downloaded two weeks ago to test this).
I disabled all of the extensions/add-ons in each browser, rebooted and they still don't function.
Uninstalled and reinstalled the browsers, auto expand still doesn't work.

I’m not sure when the phenomenon started; maybe two months ago and I don’t know what I possibly may have done to trigger it. Looks to me like a problem with the desktop computer. Also looks like a setting since it affects all of the browsers.

I have googled quite a bit, but haven’t gotten any results.

Not life threatening, but really annoying.

Any ideas/solutions?

After you uninstall try deleting this folder before you reinstall:

C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome

Thanks Ben, but no joy.

As I mentioned in my OP, this affects all three browsers.

Ray, I'd say it's some setting in Windows 7. I found the following page, which tells you how to disable automatic expansion of submenus. Just follow the steps and you'll probably see that option disabled on your computer.

Your not automatically expanding anymore?
I think they have a pill for that.
