Windoze Explorer look alike


I would like a file managet to act like Windoze Explorer. Click on a directory in the left panel and show its content in the right panel. Can this be done in Konqueror or another file manager?

Thanks

when i open konqueror, there is a side bar of the home directory (with tree, explorer style) and if i click on a little red folder to the left of the tree, it goes to root directory.

Look at the picture - the side bar lists directories, the main panel lists the contents of the directories. That's what you asked for and that's what it does.

Having played around it seem s tha the answer is to select the 'File Preview' profile. I had File management selected.
