I have a folder in Google docs with many subfolders. I want this parent folder to be expanded by default every time I log in to Google docs because I depend a lot on the subfolders.

How do I enable this setting?

I don't know if there's a setting for that; I certainly haven't found it.

However, there is something you can do about it.

If you click on the various folders you'll notice that the URL in the browser's address bar changes. So, every folder is accesible by a certain URL.

If you open a folder that's a direct child of the one you're trying to keep open, you could bookmark it's URL and open Google Docs using that link. It'll always display the parent folder (the one you want) expanded.

Thanks! Bookmarking the folder works effectively. – David Faux Apr 15 '12 at 3:19
