    Hello, i recently was searching for my temporary internet files folder in which i had change some folder settings and somehow there are now lines connecting my folders on the left side of my windows.. like the lines that connect keys in the registy. I want to remove those lines like it was before and all i could find was how to make them appear.. example Folders tree in explorer the 3 pictures at the bottom, the first is what i had and the third is what is showing now. Any help would be appreciated.
